    imho, there is no alternative fix for a bad sector. a bad sector means a PHYSICAL damage on the disk. if it is under warranty, have it returned to the shop or store you got it. if not, then you may opt for http://www.seagate.com/support/disc/utils.html and see the utility that suits you.

    there are a lot of low level format (zero fill) utilities out there. and since your disk is almost dead anyway, try to play with it http://www.disk-utility.com/hard-dis...el-format.html.

    Hi,

    In my knowledge, zero Quantum has been replaced by DataEraser. Try search it via google and if you're lucky you can probably find the crack for it.

    HDD regenerator is a good utility too.

    but still, if ever you recover your data back, i suggest you migrate to another HDD as that bad sector is a bad omen for your data.

    bad sectors on a hard disk is bad sectors! the utility only do is marked it as not to be use so one won't lose data. one will only be courting with disaster if bad sectors 10% of the capacity & still use it!

    Default Hi

    Hi Friend

    Seagate offers 5 years replacement warranty.
    So if any problem occurs simply show ur bill to the sop/ Seagte, they will replace that with a brand new one. I know few who just done that and got new HDD.

    actually it's more than 10 months, lol. it's your dealer who does not want to shoulder the cost of sending the drive back to the main supplier, etc. but it should be covered under seagate terms and conditions. the only thing is you have to convince your supplier.

    anyway, congratulations on your recovery of the ailing HDD. have your data transferred for backup, and return/replace the HDD as soon as you can since bad sectors are physical errors and it has been marked by zerofill so that no data will be written on it.
