Hi . . I want to ask about this annoying message that suddenly appeared ( I think without obvious cause )

My laptop is : toshiba satellite
Disk Name: TOSHIBA MK5075GSX

Is this a hardware or software problem ?? and is there any solution rather than replacement of the hard disk ???
thanks :)

The first thing to do is the first thing it tells you. Backup all your personal data while the disk can still manage to do it.

The seconds thing is to run Windows Checkdisk using the Command Line syntax
chkdsk /r

The /r switch wll try to find and fix any broken or corrupted sectors or clusters of sectors and it might just help you to keep the disk going for long enough to be able to clone the entire system to a new hard disk.
