    Today I purchased Disk Director 10 attempting to solve bad sectors on my hard drive. The MBR is good, but windows will not load and a Dell diag program shows bad sectors on the READ test. I figured Disk Director 10 would due the trick, however after purchase I realize that it uses the windows files to check disk and cannot check disks unless loaded on top of windows. I need help!!
    Does anyone know of a program that will scan and fix bad sectors from it's own boot disk? I am running Windows XP and booting from an USB memory stick.

    Thanks
    Chris

    the manufacturer of your hard disk may have their own (floppy or cd bootable) utility for scanning your disk.
