Hi everyone

i usnig Hard Disk Sentinel 5.01 PRO

that Program says that " there are 4 Bad sector in the Hard that cause reduce of the Health to 94%

But in the Surface Test no Any Bad Sectors , And Attribute #5 Reallocated Sector Count 0 100 100

how to overcome this problem ?

If the data is not important, or is properly backed up, you could run a complete write scan; if those sectors have been marked as bad because of an inconsistent state (which can happen for instance when there's a power failure during a write operation), overwriting them should remove them from the “pending sectors” list – if that's indeed where they appear currently. Posting a screenshot of the “SMART” tab (not the “overview”) might help to refine the diagnosis.

Full model of the drive ?

Maybe there are entries on G-List that are not showing or something is not working as it should ... Strange that Hard Disk Sentinel reports bad sectors if the G-List is empty ... maybe you do have pending sectors or re-location events ?

Re-setting G-List and S.M.A.R.T. will depend from drive to drive ...
