SMART is setup to forewarn you of a imminent drive failure. Backup your data immediately and if your computer is still under warranty contact your manufacturer for a replacement.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

Yes...it's possible...but not probable, IMO. SMART is a pretty basic system, as Baltboy stated, designed to warn of events to come.

Note: The time period a person has used a hard drive...has nothing to do with a failure, projected or real. Hard drives arrive daily as some user's doorstep...and they are DOA (dead on arrival).
