What if this notification is false?

I got the notifications in three of four machines.  Most of them new hardrives. Something is wrong with that program. I filed a bug against it.  


There is also another upstream bug against it.  So I am not the only one that does not agree with it.  

If the hard drive dies, I use a livecd.  They will not shut me down :)
Then I replace the hard drive when I have a chance.
