    If the SMART status says failing it means the drive is about to fail, probably within just a few more hours of use. There is no way to save it. If the drive is less than a year (3 years for almost all drives these days) it is under warrantee and you should be able to get it replaced without much difficulty.

    Do not bother trying to keep it as it will be a brick by the end of the week.

    Swap it out if at all possible. If the drive is already failing within a year, the supplier should cover it; that's not normal behavior.

    Glad to see someone's not as lazy as the rest of us. :p:D

    Definitely send it back, and get a replacement. :)
    At least you backed up already. ;)
