It's hard to say. A drive can test good and then fail the next day. If this data is as important as you say it is I would back it up to a secondary device or even the cloud. Is there some reason you cannot back up the data on the external? Important data should be backed up to two locations. Amazon gives unlimited data storage for $60 dollars a year which is a fair price.
Run GsmartControl. Under the Attributes tab pay special attention to Reallocated Sectors and Pending Sectors. If those increase by a large amount in a short period of time it would indicate a failing drive. Keep track of those two attributes.
Did you use Seatools for Windows to test the drive.
