That's not a drive fault stat.  That's a record of how often your computer cut power to the drive uncleanly.

 

Crashes, power cuts, out of battery (if a laptop).  Could also potentially be a sata driver issue or a fault with windows when it is shutting down or suspending. If you're using it externally, unplugging it without first ejecting.

Re: S.M.A.R.T Readings

okay, i found on the internet that if the power loss count increased the drive might be failing or something so i found that count  so Is this count normal or too large ??

As I said, that's not an indicator of drive failure.  That's your host computer letting the drive down rather than the other way around.
