I really don't know how do you think I think I fixed my old drive (the WD)... Lets say an HDD has 30.000 sectors, if from 25.000 to 30.000 are bad sectors and I install a FW that only uses 20.000 sectors then I ''fixed'' my drive, yes it can fail at any time but still I can use it a little more...
Now... I have little understanding about HDDs but my initial plan will not work anymore (I think). I put the HDD through HDD Regenerator (takes forever... still waiting) it got at 1.58% now and reports 0 Bad Sectors and 173 Delays. What exactly are this Delays?
