If you look in your event logs, you will probably see more errors (marked red) from the source name "disk". Your hard drive is about to die. For now, try to copy as much data OFF this drive as soon as possible. At a later time, it will be more and more difficult to get the data off. You already followed the correct step of "Scan and Fix" but sadly it didn't work out (usually works with errors caused by software, writing wrong bits).
