  2. hard disk bad sector repair in Windows 10

    Hi Mohqasim,

    Before proceeding further, please answer few queries.

    1. What is the make, and model of the Computer?

    2. What is the complete error message/code you receive?

    As per the description, I understand that there could be some bad sector in the hard disk.

    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to follow the below steps to run the check disk, and check.

    1. Press Windows + X, select Command prompt(Admin).

    2. Type the following command, and hit Enter.

    chkdsk /r/f

    Disclaimer: While performing check disk on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive, then chkdsk tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost.

    Please let us know if the issue got fixed or you need any further assistance.

    Thank you.

    HDD Bad Sector

    Hi Nataniel!

    I am not sure what your question is exactly, but one thing I'd recommend for sure will be to look for a replacement drive since there is already a bad sector on your current one.

    Basically there are two kinds of bad sectors - hardware and software:

    • Hardware ones are caused by physical damage or becoming magnetically fixed, and they are unrepairable. In short, once they appear it's only a matter of time (no way to say how long) until the HDD fails.
    • Software bad sectors on the other hand occur when something called an Error Correction Code (ECC) doesn't match the contents of the hard drive. These can be repaired by overwriting the data on the drive with zeroes (a.k.a. low level formatting) and sometimes
      by running a **chkdsk [write the letter of the drive:] /r** in the CMD.

    As for getting the information from the drive if one of the partitions fail, most likely you won't be able to, which is why I'd suggest to make a regular backup of your most important data.

    Hope this helps and feel free to ask any questions you may have.
