<quote>Hello power, Actually, I covered this in Myth #17. It is possible to format or use some software to "hide" bad sectors but it doesn't really repair them. All a low-level format or that software you mentioned do is replace bad sectors that they find with free sectors on spare tracks found in every hard disk. This is essentially what happens to every hard disk at the end of the manufacturing process. As you mentioned above, there is a limited number of bad sectors that the software can "repair". That is because the number of spare sectors is limited. Once the spare track is used up and there are no longer any spare sectors, then low-level formatting or that software will not be able to hide additional bad sectors.</quote> If you suspect that your disk drive is damaged and contains bad sectors, don?t hurry to throw out the disk and don?t think that your important information is irretrievably lost. Take advantage of HDD Regenerator - the unique software program for regeneration of hard disk drives. Almost 60% of all damaged by bad sectors hard drives have incorrectly magnetized disk surface. Our researches have been fruitful and we have found algorithm which is special sequence of high and low level signals. These signals are generated by the software and they switch damaged surface. Even low level formatting is not able to handle this task! HDD Regenerator regenerates bad sectors by magnetic reversal. If your hard drive is damaged by bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk losing information stored on the disk. HDD Regenerator will regenerate your hard disk. As a result, not readable damaged information will be restored. With all this going on the existing information will not be affected! if you actually clicked the link i put in and read the above paragraph quoted from the website read the above you would note that hdd regenerator restores the bad sectors unlike what the software in something like hitachi's dft does making the data in the bad sectors readable again they are actually restoring the bad sectors, i understand what most software does and what you have based your myth on however hdd regenerator does not work the same way! If it did regenerated drives would need to be reformatted and have a loss of data this is not the case with hdd regen quite often we will have drives which have 1-30 bad sectors at the start of the drive and they will not boot into windows and just get stuck in a rebooting loop, drive regen will recover them and the drive not only is usable again but will boot into the OS, you can dismiss this software and place it into the basket with all your other hdd repairing software or you can try it for yourself next time a drive of yours develops bad sectors.
