First, follow instructions and back up.
Then do a ckdsk. including repair of bad sectors. If that does not work the HD is toast.
Step 4 check both boxes.
Disk Check
I do not think that the ckdsk will work, but if it does it may be temporary.
Nothing else can be done except a wish.

Never heard of Active Smart and if all it tells you is what's displayed in those screen shots, I'd say it isn't very useful.

Download your hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic tool. It will show you SMART parameters, something like the following pic.

I'd be most concerned with re-allocated sector count, but your drive can fail at any time regardless of SMART details.

Both of them are working at the moment and not all of the programs are finding issues at the moment , i think i did chkdsk on both, although C is SSD ,so what should the chkdsk command be for it

The ones i want to check are are western digital and kingston and i guess D: is seagate, but i do assume D is not doing great ,so i am mainly focusing on the first two to be 100% sure if i can do something to make their performance better , and make sure they are doing okay

As far as I know it is the same command as shown in the tutorial. The difference between SSD and HD is that SSD does not need a defrag

"You think.......". I don't follow you. The disks either pass the manufacturer's diagnostic tests or they don't.

That's the tool for WD. Seagate has a similar tool. Either may also show SMART data for your SSD. I dunno.

At this point, all you've shown us is those 2 pictures of what Active Smart says. You apparently don't know what error Active Smart refers to or what an ordinary diagnostic app would reveal.

SMART has 20 or 30 parameters. Who knows what Active Smart is referring to. Maybe something significant. Maybe not. You need corroboration and confirmation.

Yes sir, can you tell me which test i should run, the extended one correct? And can i do these tests while my hdd's are running
and how many times can i run it on the same disk, i've heard that running some of these more than once, even the chkdsk is not that good of an idea
