Ran Western Digital Diagnostics
1) SMART Passed
2) Quick Test Passed
3) Extended Test Passed

Appear Hard Disk OK

1) Where to go from here?
IMHO not a HD issue, but a File System issue of some type.
2) Unknown how long error has existed on boot drive.
3) Anyway to identify file and also bad sectors and also determine if bad sectors hve been marked as such.

Frankly, I don't understand the problem. Did you lose some files? Do you want to understand whether the disk is dying? Or what?
