    Windows 8 HDD Error Reallocated Sectors..


    I just formated my 3-year old Toshiba Satellite L755D-21Q, installed legal Windows 8 and after a month of work I downloaded Defraggler to defrag my HDD. I opened it up and it showed me that my HDD has an error.


    5 Reallocated Sectors Count 16.376 1 1 50 0x000000003FF8

    Download CrystalDiskInfo.V6.2.0 and run it. If the info on the disk giving sector errors then it's time to backup your data and replace the HD.

    In the mean time, Open the Admin command prompt and run: chkdsk /r C:
    The chkdsk command will take a long time to run depending on how bad your HD is. Sometimes it'll take hours so be patient.

    Hope this helps !!!

    With the price of SSD is dropping. I would consider replacing it with an SSD. It will run a lot faster, no heat and battery lasts longer.

    Yes, that would work and you'll be happy with SSD. It will run/boot up a lot faster and snappier.
    good luck !!!
