i was searching for bad sector in hard drive. so, i ran a software on hard drive, Hd_speed and it gave a log file. that log file gives speed in kb/s of sectors. i see 0kb/s in some sectors. Also few hundreds kb/s and mostly in thousands kb/s. Low speed means bad sector but i want to know, below what speed should i consider the sector as bad sector?
