I don´t know it´s a HDD I found. Some files are around 7 years old. I already made a copy of them. Can I fix the drive?, Is there a program I can run for it?
Thank you.

Pending sectors are a pre-fail warning. This drive is not to be trusted, and could fail without further warning.

No. There are certain routines that can be run to check the pending sectors, but if the drive is failing, it will only make it fail faster, as it's very very hard on the drive.

 

If you want to use it until failure, it might last a little while. Could be months or years, it could be days. Just do so with the expectation that it will fail, and take any stored data with it.
