Scandisk(or whatever) should mark those sectors as bad, thus preventing them from being used. But no, you cannot erase them, they are physical areas of your disk that cannot properly hold data. Bad sectors are not uncommon, and nothing to be alarmed about, but a loud hard drive is...

My hard disk ST3120022A is detected by motherboard but it does not make me more nothing. ps: bad sectors has 12 at the beginning sectors of the hard disk.


The "table-of-contents" of the files on the disk-drive are usually written in the first few sectors. If those sectors are "bad", your files will be inaccessible.

It's time to buy a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.

How can I fix bad sectors in my hard drive


You cannot. The disk-drive has some "spare" sectors, and it should automatically reassign them, i.e., like using a spare tire on your car when one of the 4 tires goes flat, you just "swap-in" the "spare".

Unfortunately, unlike fixing a flat tire, there is no way to "repair" a bad sector on a disk.

Having "bad" sectors is a sign that your disk-drive is _SOON_ to _COMPLETELY_ fail. So, it's time for you to buy a new disk-drive, and copy all your files from your "old" disk to your "new" disk. Compare it to buying insurance for your automobile, in case of a "crash" while using your automobile (or your computer).

How can i remove bad sectors from my hard disk?????


You can not remove bad sectors from hard drives. Bad sectors are parts of the disk that become unreadable / unwriteable. Hard drives made in recent years simply stop using that part of the drive.

Lags and says has bad sector after 14 months


Good day sir/maam, hi, 14 months is too short for a hard disk operating span, what we do is run the diskmanager software that comes with the seagate hard disk, on the diskmanager menu, run the low level format which usually removes the bad sectored space out of the way, and mark it as not usable. then may I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2, one for windows and the the other for data. call your computer dealer if they have in house techs for service, or get the copy of disk manager for your seagate. Hope this helps, thanks

Bad sectors removal and formating Seagate 80 GB


I suggest puting your hdd on another computer, full format it again, and scan it for bad sectors.Also, searching for a program that repairs bad HDD sectors, the windows default erros scan could not be very helpful if there are many bad sectors.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


Hi,

Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.

The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
