As it says in your screenshot, you may have a damaged cable connecting your hard drive to your motherboard.

You'll need to open your case and check for a loose connection or a damaged cable.

Well, just have a good look and see if it is frayed, check the connectors at each end of the cable and make sure the connectors on your motherboard and hard drive don't show any obvious signs of wear.

If in doubt, buy a new cable and try that - they're not very expensive.

If you really don't feel confident in tackling the problem yourself you'll need to take your computer to your local repair shop or get a computer-savvy friend to check it out for you.

Just get a new cable. Or try to use a different SATA port. Besides this is an error that occurred during a transmission between disk and computer. You won't lose Data because whenever there is a transmission error a re-transmission is requested.
Data already store on your drive isn't affected until altered.
