Sometimes, you have difficulty in managing partitions (such as create partition, extend partition, shrink partition and move partition). For example, the very partitioning tool runs quite slow or even stops running in a time point. These might be caused by the bad sectors on your partition. At this time, you need a partition surface test tool which can help confirm whether there are bad sectors on the target partition.
MiniTool Partition Wizard is strongly suggested here, since it can scan each partition sector status by reading data from the sector. After scanning, partition block without reading error will be marked with green color, and partition block with reading error will be marked with red.
How to Perform Partition Surface Test
Step 1. Click the target partition you would like to check and select "Surface Test" from the Check Partition group or from the Partition menu.
Step 2. In the new window, click "Start Now" to begin partition surface test. Then, this software will automatically test the partition surface and show you the result.
After viewing MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial above, you can easily make a partition surface test to check whether there are bad sectors on the partition.
