Display of SATA Drive with yellow triangle - Meaning ?
#1
Photo 
My HWiNFO64 (Version 4.4.8.0) on my Notebook, displays a SATA hard disk and a SATA DVD Drive.
The display contains next to the SATA hard disk a yellow triangular icon containing a black exclamation mark.

How shall I interpret this ?

I have used other disk tools to check this SATA hard disk, without any clear negative results.

Many thanks.
J.

That means some of the S.M.A.R.T. parameters have crossed the safety threshold and the drive might be approaching a failure.
You should check the drive information in the main window for further S.M.A.R.T details. You might also try drive manufacturer's diagnostic tools to confirm this.
