Default HDD Failing?

What do you guys make of this:



Should I call in for an RMA and back up my stuff immediately or am I good, I have done a lot of research on this and get a lot of mixed feedback.

I am also getting blue screens 1-3 times a day.

What blue screens are you getting. Stop error.

Did you run WD HDD diagnostics? That would be a better pointer.

Data LifeGuard Tools (the wd hdd diagnostics) says I pass. So I shouldn't be to worried about what CrystalDisk says?

I do not think that WD will rma your drive if Data Lifeguard does not give you an error code

I would backup the stuff still. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

If Data Lifeguard or SMART doesn't say anything, I wouldn't worry about it.
