Internal HDD Raw Read Error Rate

Hello, I would like to ask if this is a serious problem. I have a Western Digital HDD that have recently failed SMART.

Hard Disk Sentinel:
Raw Read Error Rate: Threshold:51 Value:199 Worst:1 Status: OK Data:2263
Current Pending Sector Count: Threshold:0 Value:200 Worst:200 Status: OK Data:1
Off-Line Uncorrectable Sector Count: Threshold:0 Value:200 Worst:200 Status: OK Data:1

The Warranty already expired, so is my HDD dying or is it still usable?

    The pending and uncorrectable sector counts are both fine, no issues there. As for the RAW read error rate, that number can sometimes be thrown off by a temporary issue which resolved itself. In any event I wouldn't trust the drive. It might continue to function just fine, or it might die completely tomorrow. Impossible to say.
