Well done, thanks for reporting back. Hopefully you did something to ensure that those bad sectors are marked as bad.

I already did, in a previous post. If you suspect bad sectors then you need to run a thorough sector scan with chkdsk, not just a filesystem consistency check. The latter will find nothing. A bad sector scan will cause those sectors to be tagged, stopping Windows from using them again in future.

Oh yes. That I've done already. It didn't catch anything. I'll look into it again.
