Go to this site, and they will explain the first thing to try to fix your bad sectors (using Windows utilities):
http://www.ehow.com/how_113636_fix-sectors-hardfix-sectors-hard.html
If this doesn't solve your problem, you might try this program (I read where it really helped some):
http://hddguru.com/
Back up your important files before you fix your sectors, just in case there are problems. You don't want to lose your important files.
There are many third party programs out there to help with this problem, and they are reported to be better than the Windows utilities, however the Windows programs are free, and might help.
If you don't have any success with the Windows programs, Google "Fix Bad Sectors", and you will find many programs and articles that talk about this.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Errors in the hard drive.how to fix it or remove?


If a hard drive is showing errors which are normally bad sectors they cant really physically be fixed the computer just tries to ignore using those sectors of the drive. Hard drives are so cheap now days i would recommend backing up anything important and replacing it as it will get worse. Cheers from Scott and please vote

Bad sector


I was looking on http:// freeware arena.com and noticed a download that claims to be able to recover data from almost anything.
Virus?? Have you checked?
HDD's tend to go bad as you are describing, "bad sectors" ever increasing, even after format more turn up. Not good. New disk required?
