Finally after working on my computer about why it's slowing down, I found out it's because of the hard disk problem. I bought it one year ago and it was working fine until now. I don't know what's going on about it and I search some articles about reallocated sectors I still didn't get what those are!

I check my hdd with CrystalDiskInfo and it shows a caution about my hdd health. link below is screenshot of that:

I also checked it by the error-checking and in winint files I got these logs:

I really can't understand what are those. I will be glad if someone can tell me what is actually wrong with my hard disk and what can I do for it.

Thanks in advance for any responses

The first thing you should do is back up your system and if you have a spare drive or new drive standing by "clone" the disk.

Bad sections of the disk occur and are recorded by the HD to not use those areas again. A certain amount of bad areas are provided for as normal wear and tear.

You may have to make Warranty Claim through laptop maker.

Best advice is to replace drive.

Try a SSD for the laptop. Buy a brand that offers cloning software that can be downloaded from their web site.

Please fill out "system specs" in your TPU account.

All I can do is second this. Back up your data and RMA the drive. There's nothing you can do to repair a failing drive.
