Scan HDD

by toksymore In reply to hdd

I'll suggest you run Scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor to move your data to a safe location and permanently mark the bad sectors to prevent future use.

I hope this helps.

bad sectors -possible solutions

by TechGirl916 In reply to maitenance

If the surface seems ok, you might want to go to the harddrive's manufacturer's web site and see if they have a low-level formatter specific for their drives. Otherwise, get ahold of one from Maxtor or other trusted distributor. If a low level format doesn't do it, you need to contact the manufaturer to see if it can be returned for exchange (RMA).

Bad sector

The best way to do this it to run an old Norton Disk doctor under a clean dos enviroment and the replace the disk.
Norton moves the data that can be restored to a nother part of the disk and they can the be copied to a nother drive
