Hi there , 

It seems you are having trouble with bad sectors in Seagate . Try these :- 

1. First try with basic checker utility 
Right click your drive and in that you have check disk utility and then check with that.

2. I suggest downloading Tune up utilities latest and using its advanced tools to check the problems.

3. The most advance method is by download in the hirens boot CD and then writing it to a disk and then booting with it and then using its tools to check the drive. This is the Best method I say . Since it doesn't involve the OS.

4. Seagate comes with 5 Years warranty on all products . Hope that isn't over . Sent your Device for getting a quick repair.

5. Download a Low level Formatter and format the Whole HDD.
