Repair physical bad sectors on a hard disk

Amber Sass

Notes

Since the program does not change the logical structure of a hard drive, the file system may still show some sectors marked earlier as "bad" and other disk utilities such as Scandisk will detect logical bad sectors even though the disk has been successfully regenerated and is no longer damaged by physical bad sectors. If you want to remove these marks, repartition the hard disk drive.

Pros
  • Works on several different types of hard drives
  • Does not affect existing information on your hard drive
  • Repairs damage low-level disk formatting cannot
Cons
  • Not always effective

As a result of bad sectors you may have difficulties to read and copy data from your hard disk, your operating system becomes unstable and finally your computer may unable to boot altogether. When a hard drive is damaged with bad sectors, the disk not only becomes unfit for use, but also you risk losing information stored on it. The HDD Regenerator can repair damaged hard disks without affecting or changing existing data. As a result, previously unreadable and inaccessible information is restored.

Almost 60% of all hard drives damaged with bad sectors have an incorrectly magnetized disk surface. We have developed an algorithm which is used to repair damaged disk surfaces. This technology is hardware independent, it supports many types of hard drives and repairs damage that even low-level disk formatting cannot repair. As a result, previously unreadable information will be restored. Because of the way the repair is made, the existing information on the disk drive will not be affected!

"HDD Regenerator is useless"

This software consists of 2 parts.

1. HDD Scan/Repair

2. S.M.A.R.T. monitoring.

Both parts are completely broken.

I have 10(!) HDDs connected to my motherboard. Brandnew HDDs.

HDD Regenerator reports each of them as "Imminent Failure" full of SMART errors. Yet they all work fine and fast and no other programs report errors.

And the Scanning/Fixing bad sectors?

Doesn't work, because HDD Regenerator doesn't find any one of them. Not a single of my hard drives. Whether connected directly to the onboard mobo SATA ports or to my SATA PCI card.

0 points from me.

I use Windows 7, 64bit.
