When you clone or restore a drive, for example when replacing an HDD with and SSD or doing a restore from a Veeam backup you also copy over the list of bad blocks from the old drive. Chkdsk will report no errors but Veeam (or other backup software might). To fix this run,

chkdsk /b

This updates (i.e. removes) the bad block list.
