Hard Drive Bad Sectors

Post by lappytech on Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:46 am

Are there any programs that will repair, cure, or move bad sectors of a hard drive? I've been using HDAT2 v4.5.3 and on some hard drives it shows "Read error/Sector not found" and it can't fix it. Any ideas?

Usually you can not repair/cure bad sectors of a HD and certainly not move them. The only thing that can be done is have them marked as BAD so they are not used and try and recuperate any info that is in them.

If my HD would show bad sectors, I would quickly purchase a new HD and move my data before things get worse.

HD tools related with disk health that are free can be found here
