Hard Drive Questions

I have a western digital 500gb internal hard drive it always show bad sectors when i scan with hd tune but when i scan with western digital data logistics tool via booting through ubcd it shows me no error.
After scanning with wd tool for some time the bad sectors warning get disappeared and also when i scan wih hd tune
It shows me no error about bad sectors.
This happens frequently.i.e "for some times gives error some times not ".
And still today the hd tune gives me bad sectors warning
Can you please tell me the soluton and cause of this error?

I have defragged and ran chkdsk but that reports no errors.


P.S. This has no relation with my other post. Thanks

You can`t fix bad sectors on a hard drive.

Install and run Crystal Disk

Nothing, just run the program, it will tell you if the drive is good or bad.
