Is there is problem with the drive or what?

This is concerning me. It has one of my Domain controllers on it. It's backed up, but I'd rather not see it fail before I have a replacement.

I just had a drive fail on me this week with no warning. In the past, I've only had one that Smart notified me before it died. I also have one that SMART gave me a warning of over 2000 bad sectors and climbing daily. I moved that one to a different system and have been using it for over 6 months.

If I were you, I would be shopping for a replacement.

Yup. Replace ASAP. Then laugh when you use it in another system for less critical purpose and it lasts for years more.

I can't believe the thing is still running. I should install some monitoring software on that system and see what it is up to now.
