How do I reconfigure SWAP path with out reinstalling entire Fedora21?

I have 4gb SCSI disk I have been using as the SWAP disk. A Seperate physical disk from the Sys files. When I started Fedora 21 this morning it got stuck in a loop just near the end of the Plymouth screen and reported a contant flow of CRITICAL _MEDIA_ERROR on DEV SDC (which is the 4gb disk). I booted up through a USB disk into LIVE FEDORA and did a " FSCK /dev/sdc -a " and it reported the Disk as clean but when I tried booting up again (with out the USB) I get the same errors on the same disk ( SDC) and always in the same 3 sectors Any ideas why it reports as clean with FSCK but refuses to boot.? Also, How can I get the HD install of Fedora to look to a new Partition as it sSWAP so I can remove the 4gb disk from the system ? Is there a util that will allow me to create a new partition ?

Thanks for the help in advance
