Is it failing if it didnt show in disk utility? but did show this other smart utility?
Would anyone be able to tell me what checks to do to be sure whats wrong.

Whats on the disk i could move onto another and wipe anyway but I really would prefer have working HD.
Any help is great.
SMART Status: VerifiedIn terminal
diskutil info disk0 | grep SMART

If not get it to Apple and get the drive replaced.
