Bad sectors on HDD. Need to clone it.


Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I have a failing old IDE HDD. It has many bad sectors. I need to find an application that will clone them while skipping over the bad sectors on the drive. Most apps out there just fail the cloning process due to the fact that there are indeed bad sectors. How can I achieve a cloned disk without the bad sectors on the old disk? Thanks!

Okay, I tried Clonezilla and I was so confused. It didn't work unless I'm doing something wrong. I got really excited when I tried FTK. I created a RAW image of the partition. Then I exported the image to the new drive. The new drive says that there are files on it, but I can't seem them. I tried even searching for hidden files and there are none. What am I doing wrong in FTK? Thanks!
