Hey guys. Ive got a (less than 4 years old) lenovo laptop. The HDD on it failed (click of death) about just before xmas. I replaced it soon after and that one is now showing 4kb of bad sectors a few months on. Makes me rage. Is it something i am doing? I mean, I have taken care this time to keep it in its padded bag when im taking it around, and i dont move it while it is on or sleeping, but i do do a lot of walking (im a student). Is this damaging it?
Any way to "fix" these 4kb of bad sectors (im guessing if its a hw fault , probably not)? And yes, i have done a chkdsk /f /r repeatedly. It is quite annoying as i need to shrink my NTFS partition to put linux on, but it wont let me because of the bad sectors.
I need a relaible disk ,but im loathed to buy a new one in case it goes bad again? Thoughts?
