Hi there ! My Hard disk of 486 machine has some bad sectors ( 26188 kb). I keen to know is there some way to remove the bad sectors ? I am kid of microsoft world.. and few days back started learning ASP and SQl Server. Though, my machine running absolutely fine but the major issue is am not able to convert file system. My File system is Fat32. So my webcontent will be store on the same file system. As far as my knowledge is concern, anyone will be able to browse my web contents because of FAT32 file system. When I attempt to convert the file system to the NTFS file system by using the convert c: /fs:ntfs command, the conversion not succeed even though the hard disk has several GB of free space. I came to know from one knowledgebase article of Microsoft that failure of conversion is because of Bad Sectors in Hard disk. Can any helping soul put some light on the issue ? What can i do apart from new hardisk ? With thanks !
