Recently my pc was nagging me with a window telling me to backup file because my harddisk might fail any time. I ticked the never show me checkbox. After a month and half now my pc restarting more frequently.
Found this in event log, first event 52 occurs in 30 oct and last one was today, past 3 days occured 5-6 times a day.
Event 52, Disk
"The driver has detected that device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has predicted that it will fail. Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent."
Any Solution? like chkdsk or some hdd powertools? or atleast prevent pc restart until it dies completely

I guess unchecking the Automatic Restart on System Failure doesn't do it for me while i leave pc unattended and want to keep pc running that way. I was hoping if there's a solution like format or do something to that drive so it will never seek in the bad sector and will keep running. more like putting a warning pole in manhole during flood, so people won't fall in the hole.
Well i read the my hdd review somewhere that everyone says it's always failing for them around age 2-3 years. By crystaldiskinfo my power count 3276 and power hours 32793. which is almost 4years. i guess i squeezed every bit of performance from that drive :')
Thanks lonewolf7 for help,
# btw i am still wondering what this means " Red Dot, id 5, Reallocated Sectors Count, current 2, worst 2, threshold 36, ..... " in computer language
Ok, give it a another try by using drive's manufacturers diagnostics tool.
In short, you should worry if reallocated sectors is increasing consistently. If the number is constant after several boots, then it isn't a problem. If it increases consistently then you should be worried.
But what I think also that there is some mechanical errors involved thus giving you trouble. And you are welcome.
