There are bad (corrupted) sectors on the drive meaning data residing on those sectors are irretrievable.

Time to replace that disk

It appears to be a faulty USB stick with approx 1GB capacity that's been hacked to make it appear larger (2TB from your earlier question on this) h2testw tried writing to the advertised capacity but nothing beyond the first 975MB was actually transferred onto the stick.

There are no bad sectors, the sectors just don't physically exist - they are just logged in the allocation table so it looks to Windows as if they are there.

Given most of these sticks are already faulty from manufacturer and bought up cheaply specifically for scamming on auction sites I wouldn't rely too much on that 1GB of memory either.

There cannot be bad sectors on a usb flash stick. Because it is absolutely different hardware.
What the tool tells is: your usb stick is reported as 74GB and only 1GB of that stick is ok.
That means - the stick is really 1GB big though it is reported as 2TB. Fraud to say it short.

The results stated that
74.5 GByte corrupted (156347776 sectors)

You may be right but I've seen a couple of USB sticks with a large capacity fail like this. Most are due to a corrupt software on the sticks that simulates sectors virtually and compress content of disk

You may want to research virtual sector technology
