The hard drive is no longer useable. You need to replace it.

I got same problem, such a annoying problem. It kept reporting the error every 10 minutes. Moreover, I'm afriad of losing files from the HDD. Then I backed up all data to an external drive and check bad sectors for the drive, carried out chkdsk, etc. Luckily, there is no problem with my HDD. There might be problem with my system. So I disable the feature that keeps reporting the error.
here is the tutorial I followed to bakcup data, check bad sectors for HDD and disable the error "Windows detected a hard disk problem"
hope that can help you a bit.
good day

Check on the WD support site for tools to check the state of your hard-drive.
If the activated then this can be reason your see error messages from your HDD and an indication of the HDD's near failure.

But fist, time to make backups of your important data before the drive stops altogether.

Note that this is not the OP but a second person hijacking the thread but also trying to help.
WD has tools for testing their drives. Seagate and most others have tools for testing their drives. Seagate tools can be used for most other drives. These tests are more complete than general tests by Windows tools and partition tools can do so I would use them to verify the condition of the drive before trusting it.
Absolutely, keep an up to date back up of the important files in case a defect does cause a failure that is not predictable.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
