Hi,

The Smart Error log is a list of historical errors.
They might have nothing to do with the errors of the drive
but could be related with historical events on the system
like power blips, cables inserted badly, 12V cable snarfed
by the case enclosure causing a short, etc.

The current status is shown as "passed" in your example
so there is no immediate reason for alarm.

If you would like to test the drive in a running system
try the ' -t short ' option to smartctl and wait a few
minutes then run -a again and see the outcome.
