On the contrary. The threshold value is 063 for your disk. The present
value is 242, which is way higher, so you have still a lot of room.

I think your hdc has some reallocated sectors, and hda none. But as I say,
I have difficulties interpreting those readouts. You can verify with the
option --health if unsure:


nimrodel:~ # smartctl --health /dev/hda
