  1. Hello!

    Today I looked through the Event Manager Utility of Windows XP and I've seen this error there, about 15 times.

    The device, \Device\Harddisk2\D, has a bad block.

    Event 7.

    Does this mean that I have a bad on my HDD or could it be some error, like windows can't read a corrupted file?
    Thank you!

    Backing it up and reformatting it may help. Before that, error check it.
