What's the point of trying to repair a physically damaged disk. Personally I use Drive Fitness Test from IBM/Hitachi. At the shop we have had good results and very accurate testing. Burnable ISO can be found here -- http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/downloads/dft32_v... This programs boots into a non windows environment and it is very straight forward. Run a full scan on your drive. If it comes back green you're good. If it comes back red you're not good. Western Digital Scan also works well. With these two programs it does not matter what brand drive you have. They will work for everything. Best solution house70 a b G Storage December 8, 2010 12:22:10 AM Did you run the /f/r parameters? If not, try that. It you did already, time to replace the HDD. ivan1973 December 8, 2010 3:49:39 AM ok. i will try the /f/r parameters and post the results. thanks. techeasy December 11, 2010 6:35:52 AM http://www.diskgenius.net/help/check-repair-bad-sectors... try this one. it is free when using this function. ivan1973 December 20, 2010 12:25:42 AM Best answer selected by ivan1973.
