Each and every time you run scandisk it is likely to find more and more bad sectors, You disk is going to crash and I would recommend that you get your important data off before it does.  Most likely your drive will be under warranty as most drives have 3 yrs. contact manufacture about replace drive before it is to late and computer becomes unusable. A drive in this day and age should have no bad sectors what so ever do to advances in harddrive technology in the past few yrs.
