drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start
two boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad
sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule
this task when restart do not do anything while
the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer hope this
There is nothing you can do about bad sectors. The Hard Drive itself, with its associated electronics, automatically maps these bad sectors and doesn't use them any more. So, the answer to your question is "NOTHING". Bad sectors may eventually make your Hard Drive unusable, and if your bad sector count is growing quickly it's time to do a complete backup and replace the drive.
there are vaious ways
if u know how to make it slave hdd make it one by one on any desktop and run a disk defrag and scan along wd the consistancy check it is a time consuming process
ill suggest to format them it will take 20 min/hdd
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...
Bad sectors are usually the result of physical damage to the disk, so you're not going to be able to remove them easily. A full format *may* clear them, but I'd expect them to fail again. If you run a scan disk it will mark them as bad so the OS shouldn't attempt to write to them again. It will also attempt to recover the data from the bad sector and copy it somewhere else on the drive.
If your partitioning and/or formatting program is already reporting "bad sectors", then your best bet is to replace the hard drive. The mere presence of bad sectors indicates drive problem which in the normal course of time/usage would increase and eventually make the drive inoperable. Using such a drive as your "C" and/or to contain mission critical files may not be to your advantage.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
