My computer didnt recognize my hard disk


Looks like the controller on the Hard disk has malfunctioned. I am afraid, that the Hard disk has to be sent to an expert nearby for Data Recovery. They would have tools which could be used for getting your data intact. But again it all depends on the level of damage to the Hard disk.You may get all / some of your data ot you may get none. Please consult your hardware vendor for this

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.

You cannot recover bad sectors. Your disc is damaged and the drive has removed the bad sectors from being writable. You need to replace your hard drive asap before it breaks entirely. You're going to lose all your remaining data on the disc if you do not back it up immediately. Good luck, Peter

The drive may be damaged physically and is setting the remaining portions of the disc as bad sectors. If this is the case you need to replace your hard drive immediately. If the space is unpartitioned you can do this through windows using a program called partition magic. You can also reformat the drive using a windows cd and it can reformat the drive to 80 gigs (assuming the disc does not have bad sectors).
