One of my hard drives is constantly at 100%

Is there any possible way to fix the bad sectors?

 

A bad sector is bad sector

The drive keeps trying to read what's in there and then , relocates it to a good sector but what if it can't read what is in there ? 

Then those sectors will be marked as pending sectors . So if you DON'T need what's there , you can tell the HDD that you don't even care what's there and it can stop trying to read that sector and relocate it somewhere else . BUT how ? You can perform a full format ( not a quick one ) and them hard drive will realise that it can remap that sector to somewhere else but since you need your info and can't perform a format , You can use softwares as Western Digital Data Lifeguard  

You can also take a look at this link:

One of my hard drives is constantly running at 100% I've followed all the internet tutorials on how to fix the issue but I haven't yet reached a solution. Even the read/write speeds are 1% of what they used to be, I think it may be a dying drive so I'm attempting to move everything out of it but the read speeds are excruciatingly slow. 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated

 

Thanks in advance

Look , not only this drive but your other drives have problems that you should pay attention too.

For this drive , you have 192 bad sectors !!!! That's really bad,

You can remap these sectors but this is a really bad thing to see and tells u that your files might get corrupted or your HD might become unusable soon .

Again i don't know what's wrong with other drives but this one has some problems ...
