I have Bad sectors on external usb HDD
I tried to fix it (chkdsk, Low level format) to use the remainding capability but it didn't work

Do you have a solution ?

The drive is failing.

at some point the corruption could stop (defect in the disk)
but there is no guaranty that this will end.

It could also be that the drive it's self is fine, but is sustaining shock damage from being moved / transported.

There's 1 solution, get a new drive and transfer your data to it.
