I have a desktop that has a Core Duo processor, 4 GB RAM, a 500 GB Hitachi HDD and Windows Vista.  I'm having trouble accessing some of my files so I did an error disk check.  It came out with a Sector 0 error.  Is there a hard disk repair program for Vista?

Hello,

There are several ways that you can recover your error.

  • Using Command Prompt:

1. Click on the start menu and type “cmd”.

2. Right-click on “cmd.exe” and select “Run as administrator”.

3. Run the following command:

chkdsk x: /r

Here, “X:” indicates to the drive you’re having trouble.

  •  Using a recovery tool:

There are many tools online which are awesome and free but most of them are not effective.

I use AOMEI Partition Assistant. Its functions are really awesome and also supports a lot of features which will help you fix your issue.
