you might want to do a low level formatting (bad blocks suspected), but you better check the SMART status. I think that your drive isn't in a good shape.

It is hard to give advice in your situation, coz you will not like it. If you have important information on the disk, tell us where you are located to be able to find a pro in your area. Without knowledge and proper tools it is likely you would screw the drive up for good.

Plus, these are SMR drives, so additional headaches..
