Hi Cyber, & Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

Have you tried the cmd Chkdsk /f/r DriveLetter:

With you system booted up, and the ext drive connected, Open the CMD prompt, run as administrator. Type the above command with the 2 switches, then a space, and the drive letter of the ext drive and the colon.

It will take some time, probably 4-6 hours for a 1 TB disk. There is a reasonable chance that will correct the inpage error you are getting.
