You can always try defragmenting your hard-drive. I recommend that you run the Full/Access method from O&O Defrag. Just use their free 30-day trial.

If the bad sectors are software related then you can get rid of them with HDD regenerator:

If they are mechanical bad sectors then the aforementioned software won't be able to repair them and they will resurface.

You can't delete / remove bad sectors, they're faults on your hardware. Once you have a few bad sectors, you can be sure that your disk won't last any longer. My advise is to backup now your important files.

Iam using lexar 2gb micro sd card and it is showing some bad sectors how to repair and recover the data in the micro sd card


Hi:
You might try formatting the card. Go to the drive and rigth click on properties and then click on tools, first try error checking the drive, a box should pop up that has two options 1. Automatically fix the system errors and 2. Scan for and attempt to recovery of bad sectors select both boxes then click start. If all goes well and windows is able to repair the device then your data is saved. If not them reformating the device is the only way to restore the device, but data on the device will be lost..
