Reset Scanner history for a single drive

Tiago Silva


Hi. Sorry of this info is available elsewhere, I searched for it and found nothing.

--- Background ---

Scanner was warning me of bad sectors on a drive. I copied all data out of it (with FastCopy, CRC checked) and 3 files were unreadable.

Scanner only showed two of these files, tried data recovery, got one of them back. 

Did CHKDSK /X /R which failed to get the sector data ("not enough diskspace available to recover...") - 100GB available on the filesystem, BTW. Good job, Microsoft.

Slow-formatted the drive. Redid CHKDSK /X /R which now marked 8KB in bad sectors.

--- Issue ---

Scanner still has the old drive statistics and won't let go. I want to rescan the drive and filesystem for bad sectors, starting from zero as if it was a new disk. How can I do this?
