    The free version should have surface scan.
    Click on disk > surface test (this may take several hours)
    It is a read test.

    See if you can perform a surface test also called:
    Full error scan
    using HD Tune:

    or

    Have you been able to backup all of the files to another drive or to the cloud?
    Have you been able to make a backup image with Macrium and save the image to another drive?

    Once the files are saved (individual backup and/or image) you then have the ability to clean install the operating system.
    The drive can then be reassessed after the clean install.
    If the drive is ok then you can restore the files or image.

    The HD Tune did not display any bad blocks.
    There were problems reported on HD Sentinel.
    So additional testing is needed for clarification.
