    we are here to share SATs knowledge ,,,any how if your hard drive's brand is Seagate then you may use DM9(disk manager 9) is available in s/w CDs.If it is Quantum then powermax is the best utility to remove bad sector.

    bad sector is a physical damage on the drive, and no amount of zero fill or low level formatting can help you. the best thing for you to do, is run the Disk Manager (or the software suitable for your hdd according to manufacturer) and let it MARK the bad sectors for you, after that, hope that no more bad sector appears. if, however, these are still persistent and your drive is fairly new, send it back to the dealer since you have your RMA warranty for that. I managed to damage 3 WD hdd last year and the dealer had no problem about it, simply replaced the drives and off i went again.

    Default u can try this !

    there are two types of HDD bad sectors ... one is caused by virus or if there is some data that has'nt been used for a long time ....so it cuases the HDD to make a bad secotor .. this type of bad sector is called logical bad sector .. and this can be simply removed by any software provided by the company ... check for your manufacture ... and the type is physical bad sector ... which are permenant bad sectors .. all u need will is to have them marked with zero or you can use NDD ( Norton disk doctor ) to get the job done for you ..... you can search NDD on google .. better use the DOS version ... and it will not damage any of your data but will realocate it to a fresh sector and will mark the old one as bad ... you can get the dos version from installing the windows version Norton utilites and get the dos version from it .. the file name will be NDD.EXE and NDD.HLP you only need these two files ...to run it under DOS environment....you can also try a utility called maxtor low level format ... "MAXLLF" but the large capcity hard disk dont support low level format ... so if you are having a smaller HDD then use it on any manufacture ... as i have used it... it has worked for me always ...i think its enough ... may it help you too ...

    i used to use western digitals and they were sturdy and reliable (back when the capacity was 100mb to 500mb only). but since last year when i killed 3 western digitals, i switched back to maxtor. seagate WAS also a good company, but when they bought that connor drives, and started labeling connor drives as seagate, that's when seagate started going bad. maxtor and quantum are kinda ok, specially the fireball series. the smallest hdd size i had was a 10mb! hrhrhrhr.

    baba4u,

    the best way for me is to use RAID array with data stripping and mirror on another drive. but then again, i am not into any sensitive data, so i backup my personal files and have my installers ready all the time (load up on some protection, like AV, firewall, antispyware, etc. this saves the headache of having to reformat because of virii, trojans, etc)

    yeah, i think we should have another section for pc problems.
