    Reallocated sectors are sectors that have been found to be permanently faulty and have been remapped to use spare sectors from an area the drive has set aside for this purpose. Pending sectors are ones that have been detected as possibly faulty but (for now) are in use and can be read. When not in use they can be tested again (such as by doing a full format) and will be reallocated should the diagnosis prove correct. Should they pass the test they will be removed from the 'pending' list and returned to use.

    According to Backblaze, who know a thing or two about predicting drive failures, the key warning signs to look for are...
    Attribute Description
    SMART 5 Reallocated Sectors Count
    SMART 187 Reported Uncorrectable Errors
    SMART 188 Command Timeout
    SMART 197 Current Pending Sector Count
    SMART 198 Uncorrectable Sector Count

    Read this blog from Backblaze for full details...
    Thanks, very knowledgable blog.

    Hard Disk Sentinel (not free, but giveaways periodically) will monitor your disks' condition - different alarms available.

    Crystal Diskinfo can also monitor your disks and generate an alarm, but the help info (not native English) is sparse and hard to grasp.

    Routine disk imaging may well pick up disk data corruption- CRC errors- but by that time some data will be lost.
