Question about Hard Drives
Plz giv tips for remove the bad sectors from all types of hard disc on pc and laptops
Bad sectors are usually the result of physical damage to the disk, so you're not going to be able to remove them easily. A full format *may* clear them, but I'd expect them to fail again.
If you run a scan disk it will mark them as bad so the OS shouldn't attempt to write to them again. It will also attempt to recover the data from the bad sector and copy it somewhere else on the drive.
