One day you might hear strange sound from your hard drive. The computer hangs when reading/writing files, cloning partitions, formatting/checking the disk. Windows finally fails to start up after bitter attempts of reading data from HDD. The disk volumes disappear in the Explorer. Well, all these are probably caused by bad sectors on your HDD. PBD(Partition Bad Disk) can fix the bad sector problem by detecting/isolating bad sectors, partitioning the disk to exclude bad sectors from any created partition, or hide bad clusters in the file system. Then OS will ignore/bypass/block the bad sectors. You can adjust the properties of partitions such as the size, the start/stop postions at will, just like an ordinary partition software. Features: High-efficient and error-robust disk scan algorithm. You won't wait for a whole night just to see your computer hangs or makes little progress in scanning the disk. You can stop the scan at anytime and continue it later. PBD will save the scan results automatically so that you need not scan the disk again when you want to adjust the partitions next time. Almost no limitation about the number of created partitions/logical disks. Visualized disk diagram makes it easy to use. Just click the blocks in the diagram and assigned them to partitions. You can adjust the size of, the start/stop positions of, the type of partitions and split/combine partitions at will. Provided advanced partitioning strategies. Choose a strategy, and PBD does the rest. Super Format option allows you to mark bad clusters at file system level. This is useful if you want to create a large partition thus have to include some bad sectors in it(the bad sectors will be mapped out after formatting). It is much faster than traditional format when dealing with massive bad sectors, and it never hangs. Even your disk has no bad sectors, you can also use PBD as an ordinary easy-to-use partition software.
