No, Smart monitoring is about warning you of imminent hardware failure.

A drive that reports a SMART failure should be considered as unreliable, so only continue using it if you don't mind loosing the data that is stored on the hard drive.

SMART is the hard drive's ability to monitor it's own health. The message only comes up after the drive goes beyond a certain threshold of problems. Read more about SMART here.

Download the Free version of HDTune here, which will tell you exactly what problems the drive has detected.
