I don’t think there is a way of telling if a drive is about to fail other than monitoring temperature (smart sensors) or if it starts clicking or grinding or making other funny sounds for sure it’s in trouble.

How full is your system drive? If it is more than 80% full that might account for the slow down. I suppose a lot of fragmentation or corruption might cause this as well.

Are you storing media files on the system drive?
