First, recognize the common causes of bad sectors. Sometimes, a sector just goes physically bad. This means it just won't work anymore, and there is no way to repair it. It's common, and expected, but if you get enough the drive will become unusable and you'll need to replace it. Two other causes are simple drive instability or incorrect mapping; formating usually solves both of these .
The first thing is to run the CheckDisk utility (chkdsk from your command prompt). This will locate the bad sectors, and mark them as such. It will, if possible, move the data from the bad sectors to good ones. Then, in the future, your system just won't use the bad sectors. If the utility tells you that there were several thousand bad sectors, your hard drive should be backed up and replaced as soon as possible.

2nd thing, still doesn't solve the problem, back up your existing data and start clean by reformatting your drive. This should fix any 'cosmetic' damage.

If your drive has sustained physical damage. There is no way to repair physical damage and restore data lost as a result. The drive must be replaced.
If you hear an kind of clicking, scratching or rough whirring noises (aside from the ordinary hum of the disk) you should back up and replace the disk. These are all signals of physical crash. These can happen a few sectors at a time, or take the entire drive at once.

use this to fix those bad sectors

A low level format could revive the disk - download the disk utility from the disk website (e.g if it is a quantum load the disk manager from quantum site & run on the disk - follow screen instructions)
hope this helps

I have tested several programs, but the program below, just really worked for...


Let's try to explain the question that grinds us all when in cams about the hard disk. Can we actually repair a bad block? Before of the answer you must find some information about what is a hard disk, how does it work, what are bad blocks. After that you must identify them because you will need the exact location of the affected sectors. After you have done that you must run a few steps:
- before you try to resolve the problem with the bad sector you must extract the data that was written to that block. To do this you must run a Recovery program that you can find freeware on the net.
- bad sectors are unreadable parts on your hard disk but the nature of them must not be always physically and that part of the platens to be destroyed. The bad sectors can be simulated by some programs. This means that some programs installed on your computer can interrupt the reading process on to another segment of the platens. That is in the most happier cases but the chances that the bad sectors are cause by this is less then 10 percent. In this case is difficult to resolve the problem because even the Scandisk or other identification programs used to discover bad blocks will give a rapport that nothing is wrong with your hard disk. The best way is to uninstall the latest programs applied to the computer.
- lets supposed that you have a 20 gigabits partition on your hard disk that has bad blocks. After the identification program it will indicate you where are the blocks situated on the partition. So this way you can isolate them in to another partition that you must never use again. Another scenario can be created and the bad sectors can be at the beginning of the partition in the middle of it and at the end of the partition. Know it's a little bit tricky because you can't just go on and create three new partitions to eliminate the bad sectors from use. In this case most of the new hard disk has a spare space available just for this type of scenarios. You must access the CASH memory of the hard disk and indicates to the hard disk that instead of writing down on the effected blocks it must write to the spare blocks.
- another to restore the hard disk is to use the low level format option. Many of you think that low level format is a program. Wrong, the low level format option is set for any BIOS and can be easily use if you know some command line programming. The low level format can take to be complete a very long period of time but in the most cases we can obtain marvelous results. Actually the low level option takes every cluster of the hard disk and identifies them again (throw a thermal process) and writes down on the memory of the hard disk what sectors can be written and witch blocks are un-writable. This procedure is the best that can be because it will need no effort from your side to try and avoid the bad blocks that already exists and the hard disk itself know where the bad blocks are.
In conclusion the bad blocks can't be fixed. The problem is a permanent one and we can only try to use the hard disk until it is broken down for good. But if you are having financial problem this is a best way to keep going with your old hard disk.

Dear Ahrjae,
You are Toast! The last thing a technician wants to do is format a hard disk. A good format erases everything (all the software and corrupted software) and the hard-drive has the smallest amount of information on it (software) waiting to be shaped by the DVD's (Software) you are going to load it up with.
If you have a bad hard-drive you need to determine if it is a software problem or a hardware problem. Some times it is both. If it is software you can delete the program and re-install it. if it is a hardware / software problem you can run a scandisk program and other utilities to fix bad sections on the hard-drive. Electrically cut off bad sections so no memory 1's and 0's will be stored on bad sections of the magnetic hard-disk. Then you can delete bad programs and re-install them.
Sometime the hard-drive fails due to hardware problems. My favorite story is the comparison of the pickup head gliding over a hard disk (metal) and occasionally crashing to an airplane flying 600mph over the earth. Where the airplane would be destroyed if it hit the earth, in the hard-drive the pick-up head gouges out parts of the metal disk.
So your solutions: Buy a new hard drive and format it or take the unit in to be repaired. Hope you have made your restore disks.
regards,
Digital Denizen

My computer HDD have bad sactors please help to remove this on


When a hard disk has bad sectors, these sectors can be fixed by running check disk. This is a temporary fix as the hard disk is nearly worn out and it will get more bad sectors and evenually the hard disk will fail completely.
Bad sectors occur when the magnetic oxide on the disk platters is worn out and data cannot be written or read from these sectors.
To run check disk click Start - My Computer - right click on C Drive and click on Properties - click on Tools tab - then Check Now in Error Checking
I suggest once this has been done, you back up your data and purchase a new hard disk ready to install Windows etc. when the hard disk fails completely. You may want to install a new hard drive before the old hard drive fails completely.

Bad sectors


Use the following link to download the software, which helps u to detect as well as completly remove badsectors, but before u do tat, here is the answer for wat is bad sectors..

Hard disk drive is an integral part of every computer. It stores all your information. One of the most prevalent defects of hard drives is bad sectors on the disk surface. Bad sectors are a part of the disk surface which contains not readable, but frequently necessary information. As a result of bad sectors you may have difficulties to read and copy data from your disk, your operating system becomes unstable and finally your computer may unable to boot altogether.

When a hard drive is damaged with bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk losing information stored on it. The HDD Regenerator can repair damaged hard disks without affecting or changing existing data. As a result, previously unreadable and inaccessible information is restored.

ths is the software

A powerful hard disk tool that can detect and repair physical bad sectors on a hard disk drive surface and regenerate hard disk.
