How to Fix Bad Sectors in your Hard Disk

  •  Free download the copy of Hiren's Boot CD 14.1 from the link below which is about 523MB
              http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
  • Extract the files to your Hard Drive.
  • Burn the "Hiren's BootCD 14.1.iso" image file to a CD with your favorite burning software's like Nero (or) you can click the "BurnToCD.cmd" file in the same folder for easy job.

SOLUTION :
1. Insert the "Hiren's BootCD 14.1" into your CD/DVD drive.
2. Boot the PC from your CD/DVD drive by setting priority in your bios menu.
3. Select the option "DOS programs" from the Hiren's dos menu. (my choice)


4. Enter the choice : 6 for Hard Disk Tools in the menu.

5. Enter the choice : 1 for HDAT2 4.53 (Test/Repair of Bad Sectors).

6. Now the HDAT2 program window will be opened and select your Hard Disk from the menu.

7. From the "Devices Test Menu" choose the option "Check and Repair Bad Sectors".

8. Now the repairing process will continue for about several minutes based on your Hard Disk size.

NOTE1 : Backup your data on your Hard Disk before repairing bad sectors.
NOTE2: Also read my post on How to recover data from bad sector Hard disks before fixing it.

  3. It's Simple, connect your USB External hard disk to a PC/laptop through USB port and boot PC/laptop using Hiren's Boot CD. Follow steps 1-6 and in the 6th step your USB External hard disk will be displayed, select it and follow the remaining steps.

    Use DataRescue under Recovery tools from Hiren's BootCD For recovering data from a corrupted storage devices. Have any additional external HD for storing the recovered data.

  10. First of all thanks for the knowledge.
    but i'm wondering will this repair process can harm my data? cause i don't have sufficient amount of free space on the other hard drive to backup the data from the bad sector hard drive.
    any solution?

  12. Hi, it will be my first time to use the software..it would not delete my files once i performed the repair, right?

  13. Its very simple, use Kernel for windows data recovery software to save the recovered data. With this software data from FAT16, Fat32, NTFS and NTFS5 file systems can be recovered.

  14. Thanks a lot. We should download Hiren's Fourteenth Cd, because Fifteenth CD doesn't include HD testing program!

  15. I remember I tried to fix out my hard disk bad sectors and don't know what I did to my PC all of my data had been deleted. So I think before do anything do ask to any good hard disk repair agent they can easily fix these types of big problems. You can learn from them. Then do it at your own risk.

  17. If you get a S.M.A.R.T. error, fixing bad sectors will not work. Save time, and change the hard drive asap.

  23. With affiliate marketing it's important to focus on promoting products
    that offer a higher commission payout because that will make your marketing efforts
    more worth while and enable you to see a higher return on the traffic
    that you generate to your blogs and websites. Start getting money for the
    knowledge that you possess on the internet world.
    They are then given a set period of time to pay it off, if they do not a investor is given the opportunity to buy it.
