If you are running games off that drive, certainly. Given the drive's running hours and beginnings of read errors you should back up anything you consider important and replace the drive.

11 man years, or 2.5 years turned on constantly. How old is it? I'm seeing drives as far back as 2008. 14 years is a darn good run if correct.

Hard drives are cheap though, you can get a 1TB drive for $30 or so, or get yourself a 500/512GB SSD for about the same.
