I have a Seagate Baracuda 2TB mechanical HDD which is 3 years old, however it currently has 2 critical S.M.A.R.T readings. A few days ago it only had ECC error rate, however I ran chkdsk on the drive and now it's saying there are Uncorrectable Errors too.

Is this a sign I should be replacing this drive?
