Make DE to skip sectors

Tue May 24, 2016 3:01 pm

Hi Guys

I'm imaging a drive here that have bad sectors in a regular basis.
I have active the jump size of 256 sectors, but when it finds a sector, it jumps 256 sectors (making a yellow zone) but it keeps reading backwards until it hits another bad block.
I wanted it to jump those sectors and continue without reading it back, so I can read those skipped sectors later.
Where is that option??
Thanks

EDIT: found it. :mrgreen:
It's the "Do not provide specified reading after jump" option.

It stays here, it might help other guys.

No, it doesn't have that option.
This is the right option: "Do not provide specified reading after jump" option.

For my first pass, I usually set a really low timeout like 300ms. Then I set it to just jump a few sectors 1, 4 or 8 typically (depending on the case) and disable the specified reading. If I don't trust the drive to survive, I might take and image by bitmap with the setting to interrupt reading on read error. That way it'll jump a good distance on any read error and continue. It's especially handy if I'm not planning to stay and monitor the case, so I need to be sure it'll get past the bad areas faster.

Then on pass two, I increase the timeout and disable the feature to interrupt reading.
