We have half a dozen questions asking about a boot-time SMART warning:
- On booting my laptop warns me about failure of hard disk is imminent...can it be repaired or to be replaced..?
- Is there a script to disable a SMART HARD DRIVE FAILURE IS IMMINENT MESSAGE
- Warnings on HDD FAILURE
- How to fix Failure predicted on Primary Slave: WDC
- S.M.A.R.T Failure predicted in harddisk
- What are reasons for "SMART Failure predicted on hard disk" error?
Should we have a canonical question dealing with this? Or just collect the existing ones under one question? Some answers are effectively duplicates cross-question, so plain merging may not be appropriate.
