Loosing precious data due to hard disk failure is something that everyone never wanted to happen. That is why, we need, you need to constantly have a fresh backup of those precious data. But, in some cases where you were unable to perform backup and the drive gone bad, fear not, for you can still repair and revive your drive and perform data recovery before your drive would be totally unusable.
One software that i have been using for quite sometime now and never failed me so far is the HDD (Hard Disk Drives) Regenerator. This great software can do the following.
- Detect physical bad sectors on a hard disk drive surface
- Repair physical bad sectors (magnetic errors) on a hard disk drive’s surface
- It works with any file systems including NTFS and FAT, also with unformatted and unpartitioned hard disk drives
- Supports bootable regenerating floppy and cd to automatically start the regenerating process
I always use this software as the last resort for reviving my hard disk drives. regeneration takes a whole night for a 40gb drive, depends on the drive capacity that you are regenerating.
You can download the demo version of the software here.
