- No affecting hard drive/performance/recovery drive
Ok, you basically said that you have a problem but you will never do anything to fix it. That's counterproductive. Eventually you will have to do something, that's inevitable.
Anyway, would you mind giving a little bit more information? For example, how large is the hard drive? You should get a backup drive that at least as large as your current drive, and back everything up to it.
As for your battery life AND the hard drive warning, if you don't actually notice any decrease in operating time or errors (i.e used to run for 2 hours, now will only run for an hour or your hard drive is extremely slow, random blue screens etc.) don't worry about it. SMART can be oversensitive about your hard drive health and battery life warnings aren't necessarily accurate either.
Go talk to whatever company you bought this from. A 6 month lifespan is very unreasonable and any company with any intelligence will have at least a 1-year warranty if not more.
