How to fix current pending sectors on external drive?

HI

One of my external drives (WD) appeared a warning in SMART status:
C5 Current Pending Sector Count
Current = 200
Worst = 200
Threshold = 0
Raw values = 1

If this is repairable problem, what is the best tool to repair this?

Hi,

Run a chkdsk /R on this drive, and then post back the results.

Regards,

I already found WD DataLife Guard by WD. It doesnot show any SMART problems however. Basic test for the drive finished successfully, now running the extended test which is gona take 17+ hours however. Is DataLifeGuard capable of fixing pending sectors?
