Hard Drive Bad Sectors or Sedtors not found

Post by lappytech on 7th October 2012, 11:53 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?

I know Partition Magic is a good one to fix partitions, or maybe using DiskPart would help.

lappytech Back up your HDD now.
It sounds like HD failure is imminent. It may be working fine for now, but will unexpectedly crash. Most PC manufacturers have a diagnostics tool you can run to perform a thorough diagnostics check on the HD. You can access the diagnostics in "Set Up"by tapping F2 or F12? on boot up; click on "Run Diagnostics"
If you know the manufacturer of the HD, you can go to their web site and download their HD diag. tool. Western Digital have an excellent download diag. tool, "Data Lifeguard for Windows"
