Today one of my harddrive failed to read the data. I googled stuff for testing harddrives and found smartmontools. At first  run short test, but all tests failed:

smarctl -t short /dev/sda7
smarctl -l selftest /dev/sda7

Powered_Up_Time is measured from power on, and printed as
DDd+hh:mm:SS.sss where DD=days, hh=hours, mm=minutes,
SS=sec, and sss=millisec. It "wraps" after 49.710 days.

Error 716 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 9287 hours (386 days + 23 hours)
  When the command that caused the error occurred, the device was in an unknown state.

  After command completion occurred, registers were:
  ER ST SC SN CL CH DH

Is harddrive broken? Can I repair it?
