"Failure Predicted - Attribute: 5 Reallocated Sectors Count, Count of sectors moved to the spare area. Indicate problem with the disk surface or the read/write heads.
There are 783 bad sectors on the disk surface. The contents of these sectors were moved to the spare area.
Based on the number of remapping operations, the bad sectors may form continuous areas.
There are 1 weak sectors found on the disk surface. They may be remapped any time in the later use of the disk.
Replace hard disk immediately.
It is recommended to backup immediately to prevent data loss."
This is what the program tells me. Is there anyway I can avoid the bad sectors and still use the disk? (Sorry if this is a dumb question; I don't know much about hard drives.)
Edit: I am currently running check disk on it, I will post results.
Edit 2: Windows does not see the disk, but there is still a usb device connected. Check disk is also still running, however the light on my external case is red.
