I am using Restorer2000 Pro to create an bit-by-bit image of an old hard drive so I can do all kinds of data recovery on the image rather than the drive itself. Every time it gets to a certain spot on the drive, Restorer2000 hangs and the drive in question disappears from Windows Explorer. I have to reboot my computer for the drive to show up again.
I am assuming it's probably due to a bad sector since I have pretty much narrowed it down to an approximate position on the drive. Is there a way to have Windows simply ignore the bad sectors and write 0s in place of legitimate bits?
