  1. Recovering SSD with bad blocks?


    Hello,
    I have an SSD boot drive that has some bad blocks. My full story is over at Loop: System Thread Exception Not Handled, Bad System Config Info where zBook recommended that I come over to this forum:
    Bad me, I do not have a backup image of the troubled drive.

    I have watched the Macrium cloning video.

    Here is what I have tried with Macrium using of the Kyhi boot.

    Here is the view of the boot drive:

    I tried making an image but got an immediate error.

    I could not figure out where to find the log file. No tab for logs showed up.

    I tried to do a file back up. This worked other than four files.

    I plan on getting a new SSD drive. I will wait until I can get some further direction from you folks.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

  3. Bad blocks reported on an SSD - or has parts of W10 got corrupted?


    Several times a week when I switch on my W10 PC and before the desktop appears, I see a message saying "scanning and repairing". The percentage complete status of this always stays on "14%" for a good 5 minutes, before quickly finishing, and then I see the desktop. Once there, the Windows UI is extremely sluggish (unusable really) for at least another 5 minutes, before I am able to use the OS OK.

    I had a quick look in Windows Event Viewer, and noticed hundreds of "bad block" errors. There are other listed, but by far the largest number are these bad block errors. I spoke to the shop who sold me the SSD HDD that I'm using for W10, and was told that SSDs don't have blocks, and that the problem could be Windows has got corrupted somehow. Either that, or the PC's RAM might be bad.

    Any thoughts/comments/advice would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
