The current question is what data is affected by the bad sector.

Assuming the partition is NTFS, try downloading this package:

Then extract:

Windows NT File System (NTFS) File Sector Information Utility.
A tool used to dump information about an NTFS volume, and determine which volume and file contains a particular sector.

I'm guessing that you may have some issues reconciling the manner in which the different programs reference/number the disk sectors but maybe they'll agree on some convention or another
