How-To repair and revive Hard Disk Drives

Loosing precious data due to hard disk failure is something that everyone never wanted to happen. That is why, we need, you need to constantly have a fresh backup of those precious data. But, in some cases where you were unable to perform backup and the drive gone bad, fear not, for you can still repair and revive your drive and perform data recovery before your drive would be totally unusable.

One software that i have been using for quite sometime now and never failed me so far is the HDD (Hard Disk Drives) Regenerator. This great software can do the following.
  • Detect physical bad sectors on a hard disk drive surface
  • Repair physical bad sectors (magnetic errors) on a hard disk drive’s surface
  • It works with any file systems including NTFS and FAT, also with unformatted and unpartitioned hard disk drives
  • Supports bootable regenerating floppy and cd to automatically start the regenerating process
I always use this software as the last resort for reviving my hard disk drives. regeneration takes a whole night for a 40gb drive, depends on the drive capacity that you are regenerating.

You can download the demo version of the software here.

HDD Regenerator - a program to recover hard drives. Able to recover bad sectors (not hide them, namely to restore - as stated on the website). Principle of operation - the use of a special algorithm reversal unreadable sectors, allowing in many cases restore it. It uses a special boot disk / flash drive, set up after the program starts.

Key features:
  • The ability to detect and fix the broken sector.
  • The program ignores the file system scanning the disk on a physical level, so can work with any file system, and also with unformatted and non-partitioned hard drives.
  • The ability to "direct" the work directly from the OS (WinXP and older)
  • The ability to create boot disks and flash drives.
HDD Regenerator 2011:
  • Prescan mode (very useful for fast determination of bad sectors location, if a hard drive has a large number of bad sectors. Saves your time. Bad hard drives are scanned in this mode even faster than good drives!)
  • Normal scan mode has faster scanning speed
  • 4K sector size support
  • Automatic process resume in any mode (except CD / DVD)
  • Multiple hard drives better support
  • Real-time hard drive state monitor (will be available soon, currently limited)
  • Other enhancements (including temperature indicator, convenient range of sectors selection, bad SMART status, indication, overheating indication, etc.)
