    If you copy the data off to another disk and under tge erase tab in hdtune run secure erase and zero all sectors you might just find it clears the issue. Has worked for me plenty of times historically.

    Download 'Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows' from Western Digital's website and run a full diagnostic with that.

    Looking at raw SMART data only leads to confusion.

    If it was mine I'd replace it. It's a good excuse to buy a SSD.
