Hello
I had tried 2 Seagate drive . It's not a general solution.
Drive reading some from starting. And some point all remaining sector's turning red (bad sector)

My solution is easy.
Ex Bad sector starting LBA 10000
Stop action.
Set starting LBA bigger than 10000
Power of /on
Continue job. That's it.

Or
Adjust "Power RESET" reading settings

Tested 2 drives in MRT
...Enjoy

Hm?
What if translator is bad? Usually partial access means something is wrong with translator and in this case your trick won't work.

The best I can tell, the OP is just referring to the issue for some Seagate drives that go stupid when they hit a certain block of sectors and rather than have the algorithim in DE set to repower and skip sectors when it happens, you can do it manually.

For those of us who have been around for a while, this isn't anything new. But, for the new guys to the industry, it is good to know.

But, as you state, that is only for one situation and not for situations where the translator is corrupt or drives where one head stops reading after a certain LBA.

or perhaps his AltList is full, and if so, there are other workarounds...
