Is my hard drive dying ???

While surfing the net the other day, i got an error from Windows saying i should immediatly backup my hard drive.
I thought it was a pop-up so i just closed the window but after encountering it again i ran a test using CrystalDiskInfo and heres the result:

Samsung 1TB Hd103SJ

  1. It looks like you've got some bad sectors on the drive. Monitor the numbers and see if they are changing. In any case you may want to get a new hard drive and transfer the data over to it.
  2. You have two bad sectors that have been replaced by backup sectors, I wouldn't worry about it, but I would monitor the number of bad sectors for any sudden increase over the next few weeks.
  3. That is 2 ultra dma crc errors. There are 209 (D1) current pending errors.
  4. Should i just get a new drive if this is irreparable ?

    Here are some more results :

  5. It's not repairable. Either no new bad blocks will be found or other blocks will soon become bad which is why I said to monitor the numbers to see if they are increasing.

    At the very least you should make a complete backup of the drive or any essential data in case it gets any worse.
