@Yoda6 , welcome to the forum.


The Drive short-test (DST) is a app that tests the physical integrity of the hard drive when it boots.  You won't know it is running until there is problem.  Then, you will get the error message DST short test failed with a specific error code, like the most frequent ones, 0141, 0142, 0146, etc.  I would trust this over what SMART is telling you.  The DST app is designed by HP for their systems.
