WD Elements bad sectors

The day before yesterday, my Elements stop working. It doesn’t show up when I insert the USB, but it does when I go to the management. I downloaded the LifeGuard, and these are the results. Is there a way I can fix this? If not the files, can I at least save the drive?

EDIT: somebody took the screenshot down but didn’t help me at all, so the post doesn’t really make sense now. ahah So, what the results said was: 08- Unable to repair bad sectors, after the extended test.

Hi there,

If the drive has irreparable bad sectors, this is not a good sign, try to use a different USB cable see if this helps, also trying perhaps a data recovery software on the unit, lets see if another user can share some information or tips on this matter.
