I have a Seagate 40G Hard Disk. Bought before 3 years. I tried formatting the disk using
command. During formatting, it reported that the disk has some bad sectors. Thereafter, it took a very long,only to terminate formatting abrupttly at 71% jus saying 'format terminated'.
I Tried it again. It stopped evern sooner. I tried to a FDISK and then try formatting again. This time, it did not even start the FDISK operation.
Should i have to forget the disk, once for all?
