    I have a question. I recently scanned my HD's and notice one with a 4KB bad block. I did chkdsk /r and it rebooted did its thing and on another scan still says 4kb in BAD SECTORS.

    What are my options from here to solve that issue?

    Does this mean my HD will die?

    Is there any options to fix that bad sector?


    Thank You,
    Homesick
