WD myPassport is failing, files corrupted, what to do?

Hello all,

Happy New year.

I just opened my back up External hard drive (WDPassport for MAC, 5TB), to add my 2021 photos onto it. Before transferring from Desktop external drive(myBook WD6TB), I checked few photos and they are corrupt. This is just 2 years old drive.

What to do? Any point of recovering/formatting or this drive is wasted?

Not panicking as I have all the photos on 6TBdrive, I could buy another one and transfer onto it.

What's the best option you semi pros suggest for backing up 10years amateur photos?

Which drive or system is more reliable then this one, which is not working obviosly?

(I have MAC2017-1TB SSD,

2tb WD for time machine, external

6TB mybook WD for storage, external)

Thank you
