How to map out bad sectors


C

CWatters

What's the best way/prog to map out a few bad sectors so that I can make one
more backup before replacing the drive?

Ghost is reporting "Read sector failure, result = 1, drive = 0, sectors
49262215 to 49262279" and then aborts the backup. Ran it twice with similar
results.

Thanks.

Colin

You can tell ghost to ignore bads.

Ghost is reporting "Read sector failure, result = 1, drive = 0, sectors
49262215 to 49262279" and then aborts the backup. Ran it twice with similar
results.

If you're using a real copy of Ghost (derived from the Binary Research
root) as opposed to the renamed Drive Image one, then you could just use
the -FRO command line switch to force it to ignore bad clusters.

You should use software that is able to ignore bad sectors instead.
dd_rescue may be an option.

Thanks Rod and Michael,

I'm using the original Ghost and will give it a go tonight. My next problem
will be finding out what files are effected by these corrupt sectors. It
dosent seem to be anything too critical but I guess you never know.

Regards

Colin
