How to Fix A Bad Sector on a Hard Drive


How to Fix A Bad Sector on a Hard Drive

►►►SUBSCRIBE for more:

When a hard drive starts to show signs of wear and tear, you may see one or more bad sectors show up when scanning for errors on the disk, when the hard disk starts to go bad and shows bad sectors, the data may get lost on them bad sectors. Does this mean I have to replace my hard drive? no, the rest of the disk will be unaffected by bad sectors and the hard disk will still be usable. What Victoria can do is scan for bad sectors on the drive and mark them as unusable. If you choose to mark as unusable sector, the Operating System will know not write or store data to them bad sectors. In my personal experience, each hard drive and bad sector error is different from case to case and this method may or may not work for you. If the hardware is damaged bad enough I would suggest you backup what you can and replace the hard disk with a new one.

This software is no miracle worker, but it does work for same hard drive problems. Victoria Software can only fix bad sectors that aren’t physical problems, which means if its related to a software issue that leads the bad sector to be marked as bad. Remember physically damaged bad sectors on the hard drive cannot be repaired.

  1. Do this software scan the whole PC along with external hard drive or can I scan only the external one?
    and yeah,scan completed.And I have some warning and errors.Should I do anything else or it's already fixed by itself?

  2. You have a option to relocate Bad sectors, so it marks Bad sectors, and the Drive does not use them anymore. Its not a bad program, you just need to know what you are doing! Not for amateurs BTW.

  3. nvm , dont try any tool that says it will fix bad sectors they are all trash , they might increase the problem , if your harddrive has bad sectors just buy ssd or another harddrive or ,, ignore the bad sectors .
