Question about Seagate (ST3160827AS) 160 GB 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).
