it cannot be repaired but there are utils that will mark the spots as bad and the drive can still be used. The computer will just not write data to those sectors. i will look and see if i can find the name of one that does this. been along time since ihave used them. And once a drive starts getting bad sectors they usually tend to continue to pop up till the drive fails. If possible get a nother drive. They are pretty cheap these days.
i am no lazier now than I was forty years ago, but that is because I reached the limit forty years ago. You can\'t go beyond possibility.
