    Hey guys
    Currently i hav an ATA 80GB HDD..But the space is almost filled up..I also cannot delete any file..I also hav an old 20GB ATA HDD(not attached to my comp)...but this one has some bad sectors...Can i use this one as an add on even though it has bad sectors? Will my comp slow down considerably??

    IS bad sectors mean ur HDD is crashed..Well if it is then no chance..If u want to use ur Old HDD having bad sectors with ur new HDD dnt take a chance..Suggest u to try this s/w-HDD Regenerator 1.51 (nice effecient working program) and remove the bad sectors and then use it with ur new one.UR comp may slow down if ur old HDD has a really loadz of bad sectors or else it will be fine

    DOWNLOAD LINK FOR HDD Regenerator 1.51

    that data present on ur bad sector will slow down application it is related with. if any windows component gets writtenon a bad sector ur pc will become really slow.

    u should do a zero level format of your hdd first or get a new one.
