So, maybe about a 2 years ago my Samsung F3 Spinpoint had bad sectors and I repaired what with Hard Disk Sentinel. What did that do, did it mark the sector so that OS doesn't use them? I was on Windows 7 then I think.
And then, I switch the OS, install Hard Disk Sentinel and it shows that everything is okay. How is that possible, did maybe thoes sectors got permanently marked bad? I know that, if I format the drive all bad sectors on it are automatically marked, but I think I didn't do that.
But I was suspicious about this so I edited the offsets the way they were before (by editing offsets in Hard Disk Sentinel you mark those sectors bad). Did I do anything bad to my hard drive by doing this, if is there really was no bad sectors.
And now I've reset those offsets and it shows that everything is okay. Windows tool and CrystalDiskInfo also show that everything is okay.
