I've been attempting to create a backup image of my Surface Pro 3's 64GB SSD prior to installing Meltdown and Spectre updates.
In the past I've successfully imaged my SSD with Clonezilla without issue. But now, each method I've tried has either failed due to bad sectors or has finished with warnings. Macrium Reflect finished with a bad sector warning, Clonezilla failed with a bad sector warning, and the built-in Windows System Image Backup failed with a vague error.
Macrium's Image Backup shows that the C partition has over 2,400 "clusters located in bad sectors" and that the Recovery partition has over 140,000 clusters located in bad sectors.
However, Macrium's File System Check tool finds no errors on either partition. I've run chkdsk, which finds no problems (see update below), and CrystalDiskInfo shows the health status of the C drive to be good. Should I be concerned about the warnings? Is there a way to discover what files, if any, are affected?
Thank for any advice.
