You should focus your attention on saving your data

family pictures, financial records, etc., etc., to any media you can....DVDs, USB Flash Drives, external hard drive etc.,

Later you can test the drive to find out what the error is and you should have worried about backup and data save when you first got the smart error message.

What causes this error.

Age, heat, drops, etc. Usually nothing the user did. We can extend our laptop life span with simple things like using it on a hard clean surface so the air flow is good. We also clean the vents with canned air on a regular basis but mechanical things do wear out. Some are sadly thinking that the new solid state drives will fix that. They are in for a big surprise in a few years.
