I had 2 of my hard drives filled with bad sectors. From a bootable flash drive with HDD Regenerator I recovered almost all the bad sectors of one of the disk (500gb) and I scanned it again and there I found lots of delays. More than 1000. So I request you guys to tell me how to fix them. Now the second hard drive I had (250gb) I selected scan and repair and it found lots of delays and found bad sectors which were not recovered....so please can someone kindly tell me how to fix these delays and the bad sectors at the same time.

Thanks in Advance!

I would say :

1 - If the data is important forget about that "degenerator" thing. Send the drives to a REPUTABLE data recovery firm and do inform them that you did run that software on the drives as by now some of your data is already gone/erased by degenerator or the sectors should be no longer accessible as entries were added to G-List....

2 - If you don't care that much for the data or you don't want to spend a cent just CLONE/IMAGE the bad drives to new working ones with hddsuperclone or ddrescue (lacking better options) and then extract the data from the clone using something like R-Studio, GetDataBack, etc ...

VERY BAD idea to run HDD Degenerator on those drives with data that you do need to recover ...


Also the "delays" are caused by dying head(s) / bad platters .... keep on hammering the drive with that software and you will end up with NO DATA at all...

If you had data on the drives, some part of it now is probably lost for you. You would have needed to ask questions before running hdd-destructor. I even think there is a warning in that "tool" advising to run it only on empty drives.

One little thing you can still do is unscrew the pcb from the drive and inspect/clean the connectors, then reassemble the drive and try to copy or clone your data with hddsuperclone or ddrescue, as advised.

Other than that, it is time to send the drive for professionals, if the data is considered important. We have some competent people from India in the forum that could help you.
