    Reading my HDD S.M.A.R.T error log

    Hello

    My hard disk has became very slow. Sometimes when I'm open so many tabs in FF or Chrome it starts to read/write until I should manually force restart the laptop. I'm not sure if it's something with my OS configuration or HDD but because my laptop is rather old I made a S.M.A.R.T test on it but I can not understand the error log. I appreciate if anybody can tell me if this log is OK and my disk is healthy or not.

    Output for the command "sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda":

    Maybe its not your HDD, maybe you are using swap. Check your "system monitor" or in terminal enter:

    I have no swap partition on my drive. And the problem is when my drive starts to heavily read/write It's so busy that I can not run any command. I need to undrestand the smart log to confirm the health of my drive.
