Windows 7: How do I find which file is damaged?

How do I find which file is damaged?

I did a error scan with HD Tune Pro on a 2TB WDEADS20 and it says that error at 63248 MB.

The health status says I have 16 unstable sectors. How can I find which file is damaged before backing up my files to another drive?
