    S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a in-HDD feature to detect errors. You might want to run a full check on your harddisk. It could be a onetime error, but you shouldn't count on the disk anymore.
    My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target

      So what program do u suggest I use to check my HDD? And when u say i shouldn't count on it anymore, basically I need to be getting a new HDD?

        You can use a program like "Crystal Disk Info" to get your smart data, you might not make much sense of it, but it might give a hint on what to search for.

        I would also try the default Windows checkdisk feature. (Rightclick your HDD in Explorer, Properties, Tools and then Error check). Make a mark in both checkboxes before you start it. It will take quite some time to finish depending on HDD size
