You drive may have bad sectors, try these methods

There might be bad sectors in your drive. One of the major cause of bad sectors in a hard drive is due to the loss of magnetism, which occurs due to usage and time. If bad sectors are due to, loss of magnetization, then the damage to data is irreversible. If the problem is due to minor parity, then it is easy to fix a bad sector in hard drive. Below are some more causes of bad sectors:

1. Address Mark Corruption
2. Data Corruption
3. ECC Field Corruption
4. Overheating
5. Over-aging
6. Virus/Malware Attacks
7. Dust

For further clarification, I suggest you to check the health of your hard disk. You can try the below solutions to fix your corrupt drive without formatting the drive:

Solution 1: Run Antivirus Scan
Solution 2: Run CHKDSK Scan
Solution 3: Run SFC Scan

Hope it will help!
