Yesterday I noticed one of my folders was missing on my 4-years old primary HD, I checked Recycle Bin, and couldn't found it there. Feeling a bit suspicious, I proceed to conduct two S.M.A.R.T checks on NHC and HD Tune... and I found 3 Reallocated Event Count, which supposedly increases the risk of HD failure (from what I see on google paper).
Funnily, two S.M.A.R.T check results turned out to be good(?), completely disregarding the Reallocated Event Count dud as a problem.
Should I replace that 4-years old HDD on my 6 years old laptop? (btw, the first HDD went to heaven)
P.S: Thankfully, I still have a backup copy on my external HDD though, and my old laptop is used for my web projects, so data integrity is a very important matter to me.
