Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors windows 8.1

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors? Not so much they removed the option. Only chkdsk now? From command line. I ran cdm as admin for chkdsk but it tells me I don't have permission.

Any work workarounds and why did they removes the option. I love win 8.1 permission

    Not sure what the problem is.  This works for me just fine in Windows 8.1:

  1. Right-click the Start button and click "Windows PowerShell (Admin)"
  2. Type the code below, replacing "X:" with the drive letter you want to scan followed by a colon:
    Code:
    chkdsk X: /f /v /r
    

    In Windows 8.0, I experienced serious problems with chkdsk not finding errors that definitely were on disks (it said after almost no time at all that it found no errors on the disk).  What I just saw when I ran chkdsk in my Windows 8.1 virtual machine looks quite different, and it took a more normal amount of time to complete.  I believe they may have fixed it.

    Yes, it looks like the drive is failing, many of those numbers aren't good.  The real information is in the "Raw values" column, which gives the values as a hexadecimal number.  The visible IDs 05, 07, 0A, 0B, 0D, B8, BB, BC, C4, C5, C6, C7, C8, C9 should all be zero in the raw values tab.  The ones I bolded are not.

    If you have no backup of that data at all, I strongly suggest getting a new drive, copying the data to it, full formatting the old one, and then copying the data back to the old one for a backup since it hasn't failed completely yet.  I would then suggest removing the old HDD from the computer, and periodically connecting it with a USB HDD dock (so that it is powered off, stored on a shelf most of the time) to update the backup and verify that the HDD still works.  Of course, if you have a good backup, just throw this HDD out. thumb.gif
