Disk drives are divided in to millions of sectors. These sectors are nothing but small spaces which stores our data. The main reason behind this is to organize the data in an effective way so that read/write head can easily access it. These physical sectors on the disk drive may eventually fail causing the computer to behave in erratic way they are known as bad sectors. Bad sectors are the sectors on the hard disk or external hard drive that have become unusable or unreadable. Normally these sectors are detected and flagged as “unusable” by disk utility software such as CHKDSK or SCANDISK on Microsoft system. Bad sectors are automatically masked by the operating system so they are hard to identify. However that is certainly a bad sign. Only remedy in this situation is to use data restore utility to get back the data stored on these bad sectors
Bad sectors may arouse due to following reasons::
Symptoms of bad sectors on your drive:
Bad sectors affect important data stored on the disk and if the system continuously reads these sectors the risk of system crash increases. Bad sectors ultimately decrease the life of the disk and make it become dead. So it recommended to retrieve data stored on these bad sectors before you land in entire data loss from the hard disk. Usually recovering the data from these bad sectors is very difficult to handle. Only commanding and efficient tool like data retrieval utility can handle this situation and helps you to recover data from the bad sectors. This application is equipped with advanced algorithm to retrieve data from the bad sectors by creating the “disk images” of the bad sectors. Later you can easily recover data from these disk images. It supports data recovery on Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista as well as Mac operating system. It has a signature search option to locate and restore different types of files from the disk with bad sectors.Furthermore, it can also restore accidentally deleted files from USB drive, memory sticks and all other storage drives.
With the help of this data recovery software it is possible to retrieve data from deleted partition, lost partition, inaccessible partition, formatted, re-formatted partitions with in a quick span of time. This application performs sector by sector scanning of the drives to get back the data from the partitions. It is one of the best hard disk data recovery software which efficiently rescues data from different types of hard disks such as SATA, SCSI and IDE. It restores data from different hard drive brands like Fujitsu, Seagate, Maxtor, Western Digital and many more.In case, if you want to know how does this software restores data from RAID partitions, then visit here
Steps to restore data from bad sectors of disk:
Step 1: Download the utility from the site. Install and Launch the utility on your PC to get the Home screen as shown in Figure 1. Select "Recover Partitions/Drives" option provided on the Home screen.
Figure 1 : Home Window
Step 2: After that click on "Partition Recovery" option. Now a window pops up with the list of the drives connected to the system as well as system drives. Select appropriate drive from which data is to be recovered and click "Next" to proceed further as shown in Figure 2.

Step 3: After the scanning process is completed you can view the recovered data and can evaluate the recovery chances also as shown in Figure 3. If you are satisfied with the result purchase the software to save recovered files.
