Hello, i just runned DBAN (quick mode or something like that) to wipe my harddrive and when it finished it gave me the following message:
" DBAN finished with non-fatal errors
this is usually caused by disks with bad sectors
send the log file with all support requests
etc etc etc... (i was unable to save the log file because i did not have a floppy disk on hand...)"
I am not worried about the floppy disks, i am worried about the Bad Sectors..., so My question is, can BAD Sectors be fixed? can i do it my self with some free software that you now, a test, something?
I formated my PC , and then i used DBAN because i want to reinstall Windows XP Pro SP3, I know DBAN is not necessary, but i just wanted to try it... anyway, thwe BAD sectors problem is the issue...
Dell Precision workstation 470 (3 1/2 years old PC)
XP Pro Sp2 (but now i have it slipstreamed with SP3
1 Harddrive SATA 160 Gb (or 150 Gb) approximately
In the meantime i am installing right now Windows XP Pro SP3, but if i need to format again and resintall it to FIX the BAD SECTOS is no problem for me to do it.
So please give me some advice.
