Problem with my WD external hdd


2 day before i plugin my WD HDD and i got masage that drive needed to be formated ??? I had around 200 GB important files on it so i almost start to cry.

Then i started chkdsk command from dos and my data get back

But case is that i now have some yelow marks in my SMART report  and  if i test it in WD Smart ware, quick drive test is FAILED, complete drive FAILED

This external HDD is old FEW months and its under garanty and i wish to replace it cos i dont want to see any errors on my backup storage. Plz, take a look at pic and tell me what to do

Thx for any info
