Recover data from hard drive having bad sectors on Vista

Vista is an operating system which was released in several variations by Microsoft.  You can use it on personal computers, plus home and business desktops, tablet PCs, and media center PCs etc. The hard drive is split into number of small sectors, where your data is stored. The reason across this is to make hard disk drive possible to rapidly find the data and to avoid complete hard drive failure in case of small disk error. Bad sectors are the areas of the hard disk that become unfeasible and unreadable. Bad sectors can be caused by physical disturbance or because of logical problems such as due to viruses, configuration problems etc.

Sometimes, you might lose your data from hard drive due to bad sectors. In such circumstances, you don’t have to worry because you can easily recover data from hard drive having bad sectors on Vista with the help of hard drive recovery software. This tool is also used to recover data now i.e. recovers the deleted or lost data from flash memory cards, external USB drives, etc. The various symptoms of a bad hard disk drive are listed below.

  • Your system might experience the screen freezes for more time that does not permit you to open and access the files.
  • You might find the altered and corrupted files/folders, which you can’t open to access the information or data.
  • Your system might ask you constantly to scan the hard disk at boot up by using inbuilt disk fix utilities.
  • You might encounter with unwanted error messages such as “Cyclic Redundancy Error”, which shows that the hard drive has bad sectors.

The modern hard drives hold some of the spare sectors in reserve. Whenever a hard disk controller detects the bad sectors, it substitutes that bad sector with the spare sectors. Some hard drive has less numbers of spare sectors at the end and some hard disk drive has a group of spare sectors. Disk controllers typically manage in order to remap the bad sectors by hiding them fully from the Operating System. Thus, the Operating System won’t consider the bad sector further to store any of the data. Loss of data can also occur during formatting of hard drive.

Hard Disk Recovery Software is simple and very easy to use. It creates a copy of a hard disk sector by sector termed as Disk image in order to bypass the bad sectors and then retrieves the lost data from the disk image file. The disk image file contains the copy of structure of the hard disk and contents. It lets you to view the recuperated data after the data recovery process.  This tool supports Win XP, Win 7 together with Windows Vista. You can download this utility for the recovery results.
