Bad sectors are those sectors that cannot be accessed, read or write.
As a result of bad sectors, the operating system is not able to access
data. Consequently, operating system freezes when trying to read and
copy data from your disk. When a hard drive is subject to this kind
of errors, the disk basically cannot be used because a small amount
of sectors ( one or several dozens of total of 900 millions of sectors
– in case of a 500 Gs HDD) that are faulty. The Flobo Hard Disk
Repair can repair damaged hard disks without affecting or changing existing
One feature of the software is that you are able to check S.M.A.R.T.
information. Modern hard disks support S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring,
Analysis, and Reporting Technology) that was specially developed to
detect upcoming disk failures. The software informs you about the current
temperature of the hard disk – which is a very important factor
in hard drive reliability, and about the power-in-use hours of the hardisk.
Flobo Hard Disk Repair is able to predict possible failure, reading
current state of various life-critical parameters describing a disk's
reliability, and advice the user to backup data and replace hard disk.
