How to fix bad sectors on a hard disk

The minute your computer’s hard disk starts to act flaky, make sure you have an up-to-date backup. Then you can do some simple diagnostics and repairs. Both Windows and Mac OS come with built-in hard-disk utility software that scans your hard disk for errors and attempts to fix them.

This is how you fix it –

  1. Open My Computer
  2. Select the disk you want to repair
  3. Choose Properties from the File menu. You should see the Properties window for the drive that you selected.
  4. Choose the Tools tab
  5. Click the Check Now button under Error Checking Status.
  6. Depending on your version of Windows, choose either “Thorough” or “Scan for and Attempt Recovery of Bad Sectors.”
  7. Click on Start

That is how you do it.
