Bad Sector on HDD ( hard drive ) is often times occurs on a computer or laptop that we use everyday , could be due to physical bad sectors or software bad sectors the two likely is bound to happen on the hdd ( hard drive ) is too much to run activities or many run heavy applications. Bad sectors on the hard drive is physically the most likely can no longer be repaired , but the data can still be saved in a service place or serve rescue the data on the hdd ( hard drive ) that is damaged .

At the HDD ( hard drive ) that is not in bad physical sector is only on the software or similar I also do not know too much about it , but I 've tried on several multiple hdd ( hard drive ) and some are bad sectors can be recovered and partly can not be repaired anymore .

If the hard drive is starting to give a fairly loud noise sometimes even then still can be fixed , but sometimes not long back become bad sectors usually windows will often hang / lag and will only get worse until it can not be used again . Therefore if the hdd ( hard drive ) has come out very loud sound immediately backup all existing data to your second hard disk.

Some causes of disk bad sector affected computers restart repeatedly or frequent power outages due to strong not hold a lot of power, so the harddisk experiencing frequent crashes and hangs , and the hard drive has bad sectors affected then by the time we are running an application and often jammed or lag and hangs up the application could not run again and must be restart and re -run windows .

How to check whether the hard drive bad sector affected or not , we can check with Minitool partition wizard, a windows software that we can use to create , cut , wipe and check the hard drive from bad sectors. The minitool partition wizard can be use on windows xp, windows 7 and windows 8.

This how to check bad sector on hard drive

1 . Download and install the application Minitool partition wizard here .

2 . Once downloaded and installed we can directly use .

3 . Open Minitool partition wizard and check the hard disk with right click on mouse and choose "Surface Test" text and click the left mouse , then after the new window appears please click on the start button is on the top right.

4 . Scans will run , if the color of the small box is the green the sector or block is safe or good , and if the little box that have been passed is red then it is bad news because it is the sector / block that is damaged or bad sectors , should be immediately fixed by other software if the bad sector can be repaired with hard drive recovery software.

The first method to fix repair / recover bad sectors on a hard drive is to use software HDAT :

5 . From the picture above on No. 4 that is currently running hdd regenerator to repair the damaged block or sector , if the box is white after the scan is complete all that is 100 % then the hard drive does not have problems and if the rectangular box is have the "B" letter and "R" sign that the hard drive already fixed.

There is a big possibility if the hard drive has been severely damaged in the destruction of the physical damage, although there has been contained the letter " R " or a sign that the hdd has been successfully repaired and after we restart the computer in question and recheck with the hdd regenerator and if there are still have bad sector so the hard drive can not be fixed, Try using low level format tools,  and there are many software to fix a damaged hard disk in a different method.

Hopefully can help and hopefully successfully to recovery your bad sector on hard drive.
