How To Fix Bad Sector Hard Disk
In this article , you learn about HDD Regenerator software and how it works along with a tutorial video to show how it repair and retrieve your hard disk data.
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.
How it works
Almost 60% of all hard drives damaged with bad sectors have an incorrectly magnetized disk surface. It has developed an algorithm which is used to repair damaged disk surfaces. This technology is hardware independent, it supports many types of hard drives and repairs damage that even low-level disk formatting cannot repair. As a result, previously unreadable information will be restored. Because of the way the repair is made, the existing information on the disk drive will not be affected!
HDD Regenerator’s Delays Detected
- If you see delays under Windows, it is recommended to rescan the drive from a bootable regenerating CD or flash.
- If your hard drive is external, it is recommended that you connect it as an internal drive.
- Generally, 1-2 delays are not a problem.
Permanent delays mean that the hard drive has sectors with long access time. A drive with permanent delays is actually a failing drive and may cause data losses. You can try to regenerate such sectors using the “Regenerate all sectors in a range” option. Also, the delays can be regenerated in the “scan and repair” mode, if the following both conditions are met:
- The hard drive has been completely scanned at least 1 time.
- The hard drive does not contain bad sectors.
Since the program does not change the logical structure of a hard drive, the file system may still show some sectors marked earlier as “bad”, and other disk utilities such as Microsoft’s checkdisk will detect logical bad sectors even though the disk has been successfully regenerated and is no longer damaged by physical bad sectors. If you want to remove these marks, repartition the hard disk drive.
