I just did a major upgrade of my PC of just about everything except the chassis. To move my current installation, I used True Image to make a image of my old PATA IDE C: drive and wrote that image to my new SATA harddrive. That went flawlessly. The problem is that the clone was a bit TOO exact. The old C: drive had bad sectors and I now find the same sectors are marked as bad on the new SATA drive. The new drive is defect free so I need a way of resetting the bad sector list cloned from the old drive. I've googled and googled and can't find a solution. So, my question is, will Disk Editor give me the ability (with no understanding of NTFS structure) to reset and reclaim the bad sectors on my new drive? Bruce.
