? that makes no sense

hmmm, so whats the question. You say, your data is gone? Elaborate please.

Scandisk does a pretty good job of "moving" the data somewhere else if it can, before it marks a sector as bad.

If scandisk is detecting new bad blocks on a regular basis, you really ought to be making a really good backup and shopping for a new hard disk.

It sounds to me like you're saying scandisk detected bad sectors and now you can't access some/all of your data. Is that the case?
