Not if data cannot be moved. Try doing a full surface scan and see what it says.

Years ago defrag was explained to me this way. Think of it (your computer) as a file cabnet, now all the secretaries (different programs in your computer) from the office get into the files, some put them away some leave them for later, then the boss comes along (defrag) and starts putting stuff back where its suposed to be, (thats when you see the little blocks moving around) Now you now when you open a file cabinet you see those labels on the folders, thats the unmovable files or the area where the files need to be while the program is using them. and as far as the bad sectors I do not try to repair them my data is mission critical and I can not let a little thing like a bad spot on the hard drive mess me up, after so many bad spots flush the drive and install from my back up. You do make a back up dont you?
