Strange phenomenon going on here. Trueimage 8 runs backup until it reaches sector 2,965,127 of hard disk 3, upon which it reports that it cannot read data from disk. Now I've run the XP disk surface scan and nothing comes up. I also ran spinrite and it indicated one sector which it recovered. So I run the backup procedure again and trueimage gives the same error. I'm perflunked Why would it indicate bad sectors when two programs indicate otherwise?
