  • Bad sector testing

    Is there any way that the hard drive test can detect bad sectors any where on the hard drive? I turned on the bad sectors detection box on both 5.3 and 6.0 and it could not find the bad secotrs on a drive that i know has bad sectors. Thanks for you help.

    BurnInTest doesn't report on bad sectors per se. It optionally reports increases in bad sectors over the period when the disk testing takes place.

        We could custom develop something for you. Or you could purchase the SMART SDK and code something yourself.

            Normally you, the customer, would provide a written outline of the work required. we can then provide a ball park quotation for the work. If this figure was acceptable then we would go on and prepare a detailed written statement of work for your approval, before starting the work.
