You cannot really "fix" these numbers as they represent the degraded state of your HDD/SSD.

Here's what you should do:

  • Regularly check if these numbers are growing or not. If they aren't, you're OK and there's no need to worry.
  • If these numbers are growing fast, it's time to replace your disk.

Lastly and most importantly:

  • Make backups regularly if you care about your data - this is regardless of SMART values and everything that I've written above.
