How to Clone a Hard Drive With Bad Sectors Using ddrescue

ST31000528AS, 1TB 7200.12

ST31000528AS, 1TB 7200.12

well, i probably found out that it actually had a faulty power cable also, but after i now tried to run "chkdsk /r" command, it actually turned it into quite unusable drive, because it now only gives a cyclic redundancy check error and the whole drive is "unallocated"? exactly li...

How to Clone a Hard Drive With Bad Sectors Using ddrescue

How to Clone a Hard Drive With Bad Sectors Using ddrescue

ok thanks =) but i think that it actually only found the files of the previous owner, lol (he had lots of games on it) so i guess that ddrescue didnt actually copy anything, but just made the drive undetectable in Windows?

How to Clone a Hard Drive With Bad Sectors Using ddrescue

Re: ST31000528AS, 1TB 7200.12
