The disk is dying. BACKUP EVERYTHING ON THE DRIVE NOW. It could completly die any minute. If it's new, return it. If not, you'll have to replace it.

Nope, the drive has physical issues inside. Backup and then you'll need to replace it. Sorry

Take a look at this, it will tell you what crystal disk info is telling you. S.M.A.R.T. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
