I would suggest cleaning up unneeded data. I know it is not the kind of answer you are looking for but I am sure there are things that you do not really need, maybe duplicates or older version of sets of files. By making a throughout clean-up, you can probably gain many GB, you then might have enough space to swap your files around to be able to reformat your fleaky drive. Yon then have the time to think over to find a more durable solution for when this happens again.

Unlike permanent implants, it allows the patient's bone ends to remain intact, and it creates a new joint out of their own tissue."
