  1. You do have recent, restorable, data and OS partition backups, correct?
    While I think the problem might remain minor and not get worse, I recommend ensuring recent, restorable, OS and Data partition full image backups on external media is done at least weekly, for now.

  2. I forgot to mention: get educated opinions from others here because I might be wrong about the problem maybe not getting worse.

    I can't promise you that your drive will be safe, or that all other sectors will be good in the future, nobody can promise that ... but I can promise you that one bad sector will not influence disk performance.

    About 10 days back my hdd has no issues, but i made the mistake that is i installed the hd video converter software and converted about 8gb movie h264 to h265, it takes about 15hours may be this is the probable mistake I made which leads to bedsector problem

    Ok I will maintain it good by defragementing daily.. .would you like suggest me which hard drive I have to purchase for high end durability? Now My present hdd life is 6 year

  7. Purchasing a hard drive is largely a matter of opinion and personal experience.

    In general, Seagate HDDs have a lot of bad reviews these days, so that would not be my choice.

    Many people really like WD drives and will only buy those.

    Personally, I use Toshiba HDDs ... I have 2x 2TB Toshiba DT01ACA installed in my machine as data storage and backup drives for the SSDs, and I use 2x 5TB Toshiba Canvio external HDDs for additional storage and backups of the backups.

    I have used Toshiba drives for many years now and I have never had problems with any of them ... no faulty sectors, no crashes, nothing.

    But like I said, other people will have different opinions.
