|Hi guys, thanks for your replies, I ran some test and I have approximately 17101416 bad sectors.|
I did some reasearch on the internet and found a software to repair bad sectors (HDD Regenerator), but I have calcuated that to repair them it will take me approx. 197 days with HDD regenerator, as when I tried it, it fixes approx. 1 bad sector every second.
Can you suggest any other software which can fix these bad sectors in a much faster way.
I have also calcutaed that these bad sectors would add up to approx. 8,550,708 kilobystes which would add up to 0.0079% of my 2TB external hard drive (not even 1% of the total storage)
Now my 2nd question would be, is it worth it to repair it or buy a new one for such a minimal percentage, what can you suggest ? I have about 1.3TB of my favourite movies on this external hard drive, which I really would not like to lose.
What are my options, at this stage ?
Is there a way to isolate these bad sectors ? and I save the rest of the drive.
Sorry if I sound stupid by I am not really knowledgeable about these sort of things.
Thanks in advance for your help.
