CHKDSK /F halts on checking HD

Hi,
i try to run chkdsk /f on c: (about 650.000 files).
On one Sector it stops and Windows must be restarted.
S.M.A.R.T. is ok, no relocated Sectors. Disk is Western Digital 1 TB.

Maybe I need a Programm to read the whole Disk to realocate then defektive Sector...

better ideas?

Thanks

1. Defragment the disk

Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use

2. Run a chkdsk /R

Disk Check

I tried to defrag the disk with O&O Defrag. This Programm runs a chkdsk that stops due the error

Run the Windows defragmenter first, then perform the chkdsk later.

The disk check can be turned off in O&O defrag, but I would not use it. I tried it on w7 and it fouls it up badly.
Do as Golden suggested, it puts file where w7 needs them to be.

DataLiveGuard run without errors.
CHKDSK on 1 TB must be run... (about 3 Hours).
