Currently Pending Sector Count on HDD

Question

On crystaldisk it says my harddrive has a Currently Pending Sector Count of 8, all other values are at 0. Was wondering how I can fix the currently pending sectors?

I use Vivard off of the Ultimate Boot CD.  Run a remap test.  Odds are you have a few bad sectors on your HDD.  I would advise backing up any vital information on this HDD before doing so in case it would die totally.  It is unlikely but best to be safe.  If it just remaps a couple sectors, then your HDD will likely be fine for a while.  If it remaps more than 10 I would look into replacing it.
