Re: How to clear information about bad sectors in a MFT?
After 10 months of use from a new 120GB drive, chkdsk shows 0 KB in bad
sectors. It has been a long time since I remember seeing anything listed as
bad sectors, or seeing so many (along with the sounds) that I knew the drive
was close to dead.
If you have 100 GB of bad sectors, you have a very bad drive. Forget about
clearing the MFT. Worry about getting your data off that drive and getting
a new drive.
