I am having trouble with my main HDD. My current pending sector count is 1. Additionally, I am receiving continuous errors of similar type with "Uncorrectable error in data" and now for the first time "Media is write protected". All are at LBA = 0x 152ab4240 = 5681922624. Furthermore, the errors have come in a continuous interval.

Here is the log:

What WD Dashboard says?
Link: https://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?p=279

The WD drive you have, isn't meant as OS drive, instead it is meant as NAS drive. Due to that, it may have shorter lifespan, when used outside of the designed scope. Still, hardware fails on a daily basis and by the looks of it, your WD HDD is on it's way out. Time to look towards new drive, preferably SSD, since SSDs are far more reliable and faster as well.

WD Dashboard shows it to be healthy based on S.M.A.R.T stats. What setting should I look into? I am not using the drive as an OS drive. OS is stored on my SSD and this drive functions as a storage drive for music, movies etc. Though, it is not in an NAS, but in my desktop.

There is a tool, named Data Lifeguard Diagnostic, that WD developed to monitor and check the health of their HDDs,
link: https://support.wdc.com/downloads.aspx?p=3&lang=en

Which i also used when i had WD HDDs in use. Since then, i've phased out all HDDs in my PCs and i'm only running SSDs (both SATA and NVMe).
At 1st, i was going to suggest Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for you, but as you can see from the link included, WD has abandoned this software and replaced it with WD Dashboard instead.

As of what to check from WD Dashboard, HDD health and if you can, run benchmark test on HDD. Data Lifeguard Diagnostic had HDD test suite built-in. I don't know if WD Dashboard also has HDD test suite in it nor i can not check it, since i don't have any WD HDDs in my systems anymore.

To keep your HDD healthy, always keep at least 20% of HDDs total capacity free. E.g for 1TB drive, that translates into 186GB (since 1TB drive actually has space for 931GB in total).

Also, use disk defragmentation tool about once a month to keep your files on a HDD in nice and proper order. Disk defrag also boosts the HDD read/write speeds at some extent if you have a lot of fragmented files on a HDD.

I'm was using MyDefrag to keep my WD Blue 1TB HDDs healthy,

MyDefrag description

MyDefrag is a disk defragmenter and optimizer, that is a maintenance utility to make your hard disk faster. It is freeware, no time limit, fully functional, no advertisements. Fast, low overhead, with many optimization strategies, can handle floppies, USB disks, memory sticks, and anything else that looks like a disk to Windows. Included are a set of easy to use scripts for end-users, a scripting engine for demanding users, a screensaver, and a combined Windows plus command line version that can be scheduled by the Windows task scheduler or for use from administrator scripts.

MyDefrag is extremely solid because it is based on the standard defragmentation API by Microsoft, a system library that is included in Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, and Win7. Most defragmenters are based on this API, including the free defragmenter that comes with Windows and many commercial defragmenters. Basically all MyDefrag does is send "move this file to that location" commands to the API. The API is part of the operating system and can safely move almost any file on the disk, without risk and while the computer is in full use.

What is "disk fragmentation"?
Imagine a book split into several parts, some pages are over here, other pages in another room on another floor altogether. You will have to walk a lot when you need to read the book. It may sound silly, but this is exactly what happens to files on your harddisk. Defragmentation will put all the parts (fragments) back together, making your computer a lot faster.

What is "disk optimization"?
Imagine a big library with lot's of books, spread out all over the building and not sorted whatsoever. There is an index telling you exactly where every book is, but you will have to walk a lot when you need several books. This is exactly what happens on your harddisk, the files that belong to an application can be all over the place, anywhere on the harddisk. Optimization will bring all the files together in one place, leaving the rest of the harddisk empty, and will sort the files, for example alphabetically.
So, doing HDD defrag often helps to keep the drive in working order and it can mitigate file corruption to some extent. Or the very least, shows you how many bad sectors you have on your drive.

WD Dashboard seems to have short and extended SMART tests. I could try to run the extended one.

DMDE is probably the least user friendly of all data recovery software. :-(

This is how I got there:

Launch DMDE and select your physical disc.

D-click your desired NTFS volume. You should now see your file/folder tree.

Select Editor -> Physical Sectors and specify your desired sector.

Focus Sector = 5681922624​
First Sector = 5681922624​
Number of Sectors = 1​
Offset (Bytes) = 0​
OK​
You should now see the hexadecimal content of this sector in the bottom RH pane.

Click the Up Arrow to bring the pane into focus.

Select Editor -> File Data

You should now see a dialogue box which is scanning the MFT records and looking for the file which corresponds to your sector. When it finishes, you will see the file name at the top of your tab.

If DMDE is unable to read this sector, choose the sector immediately before it (5681922623) or the next physical sector (5681922632).

Thank you very much for a detailed guide! I got to the physical sectors and pressed ok. After a short while, I received "WinError 23. Data error (cyclic redundancy check", with an alert of informing the risks of further working.
 
Some additional suggestions ...

https://superuser.com/questions/1266135/how-do-i-find-if-there-are-files-at-a-specific-bad-sector

Extract "nfi.exe" from http://www.jumpjet.info/Application-Software/Windows/tools/oem_support_tools/oem3sr2.zip

Convert your absolute sector number (5681922624) to a relative (logical or volume) sector number. For example, if your partition's drive letter is C:, then determine the starting LBA for C: from DMDE's Partitions window. Let's assume this is LBA 2048.

Therefore, the sector number relative to the start of the volume is 5681922624 - 2048 = 5681920576.

In a CMD window, type ..

nfi.exe C: 5681920576​
Here is an example for relative sector 400000:

Code:
C:\Software\Microsoft\Win2000_OEM_Support_Tools\nfi C: 400000
