What we can figure out from above results is that the HDD needs to be replaced. What are the values that indicate such action ? From where we can see that this disk is damaged ?

What a reallocated sector is ? How this RAW_VALUE is a red alert for the health of the HDD ?

As we can read from Wikipedia

Reallocated_Sector_Ct

Count of reallocated sectors. When the hard drive finds a read/write/verification error, it marks that sector as "reallocated" and transfers data to a special reserved area (spare area). This process is also known as remapping, and reallocated sectors are called "remaps". The raw value normally represents a count of the bad sectors that have been found and remapped. Thus, the higher the attribute value, the more sectors the drive has had to reallocate. This allows a drive with bad sectors to continue operation; however, a drive which has had any reallocations at all is significantly more likely to fail in the near future.[3] While primarily used as a metric of the life expectancy of the drive, this number also affects performance. As the count of reallocated sectors increases, the read/write speed tends to become worse because the drive head is forced to seek to the reserved area whenever a remap is accessed. If sequential access speed is critical, the remapped sectors can be manually marked as bad blocks in the file system in order to prevent their use.

and

Reallocation Event Count

Count of remap operations. The raw value of this attribute shows the total count of attempts to transfer data from reallocated sectors to a spare area. Both successful & unsuccessful attempts are counted.

My suggestion is to backup any essential/personal files immediately and search for a new drive (or any drive) to replace this one.
