I'm afraid there is nothing to do.... Basically, as you can see in the text description area there are lots of errors reported for this hard disk. I can recommend what the software suggests:

> Replace hard disk immediately.

The number of errors is too high - and these cannot be repaired and the hard disk may fail completely any time or "just" can't work stable when it access a failing sector.

We may use the best effective ways: the different functions of Hard Disk Sentinel to try improving the situation, stabilize and attempt to repair problems, for example the Disk -> Surface test -> Disk repair test (which usually designed to fix when the amount of problems is relatively low) or the Disk -> Surface test -> Reinitialise disk surface test to improve the status somehow, but because of the high number of problems, new and new problems will be reported from time to time.

In this situation, you may ask for warranty replacement (if the hard disk still has warranty) because the hard disk is considered "bad". For a such hard disk, new operating system installations may not be possible at all and it is possible that the computer even displays a warning notification before starting the operating system, indicating that hard disk drive failure may occur soon.

You may do some "tricks" for example make a small partition (eg. 200-250 GBytes) and use the drive with such small capacity. Ideally as the first 250 GB seems fine, this area can be used - but personally I'd not trust such hard disk drive for any storage.
