HDD bad sectors
Posted on 2013-01-21
I have 1tb internal Seagate hdd which has developed around 34 badsectors as reported by Acronis and hard disk sentinel tools. It is showing hdd health as 42%. I have taken complete back up of the data. Now the disk is fully blank. is it possible to push these bad sectors to one side and use the remaining portion of the space( by say partioning into logical drives) and make sure that no data is written to these bad sectors in future
Or is it advisable to get the replacement from the seagate.
