    you are not getting my suggestion ,Why ?
    i'm self taught [and don't know a lot of the new stuff !]but have been fixing computer for years and its my opinion that the windows scan is not as thorough as the hdd makers utility , you may run it and get the same results as the windows scan ,but at least you are getting a second opinion .

    Good point.

    Windows & other programs results often are not the same.

    I suggest reviewing the Power Options - especially those setting that allow the HDD to sleep or power down. Try disabling any power saving settings and see what happens.
