Hi,

Im using this for years and its good.

http://www.diskology.com/djstandard.html

Currently Im recovering a drive by "partition recovery" and Im wondering how far into the drive it is - see pic.
Its taken 12 hours to reach this far and depending whether its half way or near the end I will pull the plug.

Anyone know how far 00001270B5FB is into a 250 gig drive?
Id like to know this for future ref as well how far each gig is

If there are 1000s of bad sectors Im out of luck, but if a few I will be ok

Thanks
