Likewise , I ran W-D Data Lifeguard Diagnostic extended test also fail while repairing bad sector.
The most favourable feature provided by seatool is that (quote from seatool user guide ) “ If you give permission to attempt to repair a bad sector, then SeaTools will attempt to write a 512-byte pattern of zeros to that single error sector. Usually, this action will assist the disc drive firmware in managing the problem by retiring the problem sector and activating a spare in its place.”
Is this mean that other good condition cluster surfaces will not be interfered and still be in the same condition also this process called Zero fill ? I try to avoid any process which will interfere the whole disk process as the majority is still in the good condition yet I am pretty confuse about the difference of various HD repair process, if you would describe the distinction and the effect of zero fill and low level format or other repair process, please -
Are there any other tools provide such feature, please ?
Please kindly advise.
