My laptop had the following critical error:


Windows Disk Diagnostic detected a S.M.A.R.T. fault on disk Hitachi HTS547575A9E384 SCSI Disk Device (volumes C:\;D:\).  This disk might fail; back up your computer now. All data on the hard disk, including files, documents, pictures, programs, and settings might be lost if your hard disk fails.  To determine if the hard disk needs to be repaired or replaced, contact the manufacturer of your computer.  If you can't back up (for example, you have no CDs or other backup media), you should shut down your computer and restart when you have backup media available.  In the meantime, do not save any critical files to this disk.

I've attached the MSinfo32. Do I have to replace the HDD? >_< I just bought it last April 2013, but the warranty is only for a year.
Thanks in advance!

if the SMART diagnostic  is failing, then you'll want to be lookin for a new drive, I wouldn't trust that drive to hold anything valuable, it's kinda like your car tire having a huge bulge in the sidewall, and you drive it anyway, you know it's gonna blow, just not when.
