My guess is that they are too damaged to be recovered. You can still try this with a commercial app called Spinrite; its very good at fixing physical HDD damage. | Report abuse alidan March 23, 2010 5:29:15 AM i dont realy care about retrieving the information, im more interested in what the information was part of. this hard drive largely consists of images i found, video i can get again, and archives i can get again. i would love to know what is damaged so i could re get it if possible because it was only 2 sectors im guessing that most of the data i couldnt retrieve was nothing i will notice but it would be nice to know 100% | Report abuse sub mesa March 23, 2010 1:15:21 PM So then you DO want to retrieve the information, right? Why do you say you don't? You either want to access the data on that harddrive, or not. If you do, try as suggested; Spinrite will do the job, correct your damage and allow you to check the contents and copy them somewhere safe if you want. | Report abuse alidan March 25, 2010 7:19:24 PM sorry its hard to explain. i dont care about the info in those sectors, and most likely in normal computer use i would never even notice it was gone. but i would like to know what data was attached to that sector. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Sector lookup> Related ressources: ForumSigns of cpu failure ForumWhat is the cheapest x86 or x64 processor that supports AES-NI?
