Tool to overwrite (lock) a couple of bad sectors on HHD

#1

I have an 80 gig Seagate HDD with a couple of bad sectors on it.

Is there a tool that can overwrite and lock those cells.

Thanks to all members who repond.

It recently took me 6 hours to complete a scan on a 40 GB hard drive that was donated from a system I worked on a while ago because the drive had bad sectors.

The scan found and recovered 4 bad sectors.

HDD Regenerator by Dmitriy Primochenko was the tool used for this task.

Note: The trial version will only recover the first bad sector. You will need the full version if there are additional bad sectors.

Doesn’t Seagate provide software for analyzing and repairing their drives?
