Now the file itself was a video file, and I want to understand what that message means, but I am having trouble working it out.
Does this mean that the data in those clusters has been lost? Is the video file now missing that data? Has Windows salvaged some data from the sectors in those clusters and moved that data to a new location?
Full of questions, but I cannot figure it out, any help will be much appreciated.
yes, rolli59 is right. Windows moved the data from bad sector to some other good sector and marked the damaged sector as bad. Ur current installation of windows wont use that bad sector again unless u format with a fresh installation. It is same as available in tools> error checking option> search and replace bad sectors ( a full surface scan). Mostly if windows fails to recover data from going bad sectors u will get a data error cyclic redundancy check like messages.
Best answer selected by bananabread.nnThanks everyone. Appreciate the advice too, the file itself is corrupt, and now I know that if I want to make sure that I am able to keep something, I have to back it up.
