What to do when thers is bad sectors in harddisk?
How to remive it for ever
There is no software/method tat can remove the bad sectors in a HDD forever..The bad sectors are caused due to many reasons like:
Physical damage,Unnecessary Formatting the HDD etc.
Due to this the HDD life decreases and soon there is a time to buy a new HDD.
Cheers n e-peace.......
a full format spots the bad sectors and avoids data gettin written into it
if it is a logical bad sector, then it is corrected by the format
U can also use the Seatools (from segate)... there are several other tools are available for the same..
they either do the 0 fill or mark that sector as bad... by which the OS does not access them for Read or write
here is one method ....by which u can minimize or minimize bad sectors .....
right on my computer then click manage then goto the disk managment then u willl see diff partitions there than right click on the partitions then properties then tools n check now ...............
do this for each drive .............
if even there is bad sectors ..then last solution is
CHANGE UR HARD DISK
Sometimes there are sectors that can be repaired using tools like Seatools or paid things like "HDD Regenerator".
yes Remove wit..DM...
