    4k to 92k in bad sectors & cloning drive


    I was cleaning up one of my systems & uninstalled Roxio Creator 2012 & Divx as I not need it & after uninstall my system became slow & bad response & did a chkdsk & says found orphaned file etc. & did a chkdsk /f & restarted & fixed problem but when i did a chkdsk again it found 4k of bad sectors. I did some research & tried chkdsk /b & took over 5 hrs & then did a chkdsk & now found 92k of bad sectors & did a chkdsk /f again & now same 92k. I did a system restore to before i uninstalled Roxio & the error was still there but Roxio & Divx was there again.
    I also did a clone to a new HD using Acronis True Image 2015 Western Digital edition & cloned but the bad sector was same on new drive but i noticed drive clone not to good i had to install windows 10 from with in windows MCT tool i burned to dvd over it as i did a sfc /scannow on cloned drive & found problems.

    How do i remove the flag from Windows or chkdsk displaying the bad sector as the hard drives are fine & on cloned drive is a new drive & made a 2nd clone on a smaller older drive & same thing. Is there something in the registry or a file i need to delete?

    Original Hard Drive is a WD 1TB
    Cloned is a New WD 2TB
    Second Cloned is a Seagate Barracuda 320GB

    Last thing as i hear Acronis isn't that great is there any better free cloning software I can try as I make a bootable DVD & use it instead of installing it. I want to clone other pc's as Acronis after you uninstall it leaves to much in registry etc.

    Kyhi's recovery tools:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk

    Macrium Reflect and AEOMI Partition Assistant both have cloning capability. There are also disk utilities on there too that will probably fix your bad sectors issue, but I am not well versed in using them.

    How do you know the drive is ok? Bad sectors are a hardware fault disk has engineering blocks and bad blocks are reassigned to them so if the drive then shows bad blocks there are a lot and sign of failing drive. Doing a clone will copy them to new drive. The only test is tools free from disk makers website. If you unmark them you will just get data loss and slow speed

    The cloning has copied the bad block table from the bad drive to an otherwise functional new drive. Chkdsk /B should be able to release them for future use. It's what TechNet recommend you should do after cloning.

    /b NTFS only: Clears the list of bad clusters on the volume and rescans all allocated and free clusters for errors. /b includes the functionality of /r. Use this parameter after imaging a volume to a new hard disk drive.

    OK i used WD check program & the drive is fine & healthy. So the cloned drive i should do a chkdsk /r after i done & the bad block./ sectors on that drive will go away?
