Six Problems that you can Suffer due to Bad Sector

by Techchef Data Recovery Techchef Data Recovery
Generally, when you read/write data on your device, it is stored in the sectors of a disk platter. Once these sectors are damaged, they become a bad sector where the data can not be read/write. 

Certain factors like the improper shutdown of computers, heat or dust in the hard disk, poor hardware, etc., result in bad sectors. 

Though, few bad sectors don't affect the system. As soon as more bad sectors accumulate, the risk of data loss rises, which can only be restored with hard drive data recovery. 

So, here are the six common problems that you can encounter owing to bad sectors in the hard disk drive. 

1. Sluggish performance of computer 

One of the major impacts of bad sector accumulation can be the poor performance of your computer. This may cause problems while you move files or launch programs that will take time to open. 

2. Corrupted partition

Bad sectors gather in the partition of the hard disk drive causing corruption or inaccessibility of the partition. When a partition is compromised, the files stored in it can also be impacted, which will make the data corrupted. 

3. Corrupted files

As mentioned above, if the bad sectors affect drive partitions, your stored files can be at high risk. You may find them inaccessible or corrupted when you try to open them. 

4. Hard drive wear and tear

Provided that the head of the disk will not read the bad sectors, it will try back and forth to read the data missing in the sectors, causing wear and tear of the hard disk drive.

5. Unbootable hard drive

Once the bad sectors collect in the hard disk drive, at a level, it will not respond to the computer commands and will lead to unbooting of the hard drive. As a result, your entire computer data will be inaccessible. 

6. Corrupted firmware

Firmware of the hard drive has a significant role in reading, writing and accessing the data on the hard disk. So, bad sectors can go worse on the firmware, causing corruption in the firmware. 

Final words

Amidst the problems caused by bad sectors, you should be prepared with a data backup for fast data recovery. Your computer data will become inaccessible owing to hard disk bad sectors. Also, you must avoid data recovery utilities on the hard disk drive as they do more harm than good, leading to permanent data loss. Look for professional assistance for reliable data recovery when your data is corrupted or lost due to bad sectors.
