Is this hard drive broke?
My sister has a hard drive thats been causing some problems. I ran chkdsk/f and it basically does nothing, so I ran chkdsk/r and it always gets stuck on 27%. I also ran seatools and it detects 100 errors for every ~10,000 LBA sectors, it will fix all the errors but it makes me stop, fix, resume scanning every 100 errors so it would take me about 2 months to finish. So I am trying to run spinrite and it keeps extending the estimated time, it started at 9 hours and for now has jumped to 612 hours. Also with Spinrite I'm at 0.25% after 10 hours it shows 2 blocks, the first was fixed but the second could not be.
So is the hard drive beyond repair? Or is there something I can do.
