Windows 7: Any software for removing bad sector

If "Seatool" can't fix a Seagate HDD, it's condition will be bad and i wouldn't recommend using it. However as a learning experience, you can give a try to HDAT2.

1. Download HDAT2 from

2. Double click the self extracting archive file to extract the ISO file. Then burn the ISO to a blank CD.

3. Boot from the CD and select your HDD for testing.

4. From the "Devices Test Menu" choose the option "Check and Repair Bad Sectors".

Depending on the size of disk and the number of bad sectors, this will take sometime to complete. After it is successful in repairing bad sector, rerun "Seatool" and make sure the disk passes the surface test.
