How can I recover data from hard disk that contains bad sectors using Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery application?
Author : Creative Team Updated on November 2, 2017
To recover data from a hard disk drive containing bad sectors, we suggest you create an image of the hard drive because scanning for data on the original hard drive will be very slow and more usage of such a disk can increase the bad sectors.
To create an image, follow the below-mentioned steps:
Launch Stellar Phoenix Mac data recovery software and click Start New Scan.
Select the hard drive/volume whose image you wish to create.
Note: In case, you wish to create an image of a specific region/part of the drive/volume, move the slider in Select Region area to select the range of the drive/volume.
Choose the button and specify the location for saving the image file.
The software starts creating image of the selected drive/volume.
The software saves the image of the media disc at the specified location.
Now, to recover the data from the image, you will have to use the Resume Saved Scan option and follow the steps mentioned below:
Click on the Resume Saved Scan button on the main user Interface. The Resume Saved Scan window opens. This window contains the list of image files existing in the system.
Select the image from the list and click the button.
Select the recovery option to start the recovery process.
Specify the location where you want to save the files/folders.
The software saves the files/folder at the specified location.
