Hi, I'm failing in creating a full backup of my laptop which has the following main characteristics.
Flex 2-14D Laptop (Lenovo), Model 80EE59432967, Windows 10 (64-bit)
Disk Drive: ST500LT012-1DG14 SATA DISK DEVICE
The issue seems to be the presence of bad sectors in my hard disk. Both Macrium Reflect and Paragon HD Manager 16 tools suggested to run chkdsk /r/f to fix it.The command runs successfully but doesn't solve the problem.
Seagate Tools for Windows DST and Long Test fail and the tool suggest to run its DOS version. Unfortunately the DOS version is not of help. It can't locate any drive(s) when it's launched from a bootable USB drive.
HD Tune test doesn't report any error (see attached file "HD Tune Scan Report"). Its Health report has an warning ("HD Tune Health Report" file).
I ran EaseUS Check Partition as well. The tool can't complete the surface test. It finds one bad sector (at around 36% of the process) then it stops running between 45 and 56% of the process (it never stops at a precise point-cfr "EaseUS Report")
If it was not for the backup issue I wouldn't see any problem in using my PC. Can you pls. advice if there's a way to repair the bad sector or if I need to replace my HDD to avoid any potential worse scenario?
