How to use HDD regenerator to regenerate only sectors with d

October 24, 2015 at 07:55:44
Specs: Linux
I've used HDD Regenerator v2011 to scan my notebook HDD (Toshiba MK6465GSX) for bad sectors. The software discovered and recovered all bad sectors (120 sectors). It has also detected 5 sectors with delays. However fixing those delays with this tool is aganizingly slow. Delays were discovered at sector 0 and for 7 hours only 750MB were regenerated...Can you imagine that???
As per the Console calculations, the whole process will take a staggerring 89 hours...
Can anyone, please show me how to just regenerate those sectors with delays instead of running the process on the whole HDD.
Thanks in advance.

Since this software costs $99 I think you can reasonably expect to get decent support from the manufacturer. Contact them with your query.

At $99 cost I would have elected to replace the drive.

I'm with OtheHill on this one. Buy a new drive.

If the drive platers have physical defects on them (which is usually why the sectors go bad), no software in the world is going to repair it. And I would be very leery of any sectors that supposedly got recovered, there is a reason they went bad in the first place.
What you bought was $99 of snake oil.

You can't fix a hardware problem with software. I agree with the others - you should have just replaced the HDD.

Chkdsk would do the same and it comes with the OS.
