With the disk comes into increasing use, bad sectors will appear, and there will be more and more. The data stored in a bad sector may be corrupted or lost. How to know if there are bad sectors in the hard drive? You can make a surface test with a well-designed disk surface test tool.

What Is a Disk Surface Test?

A surface test is a scan of a hard drive (HDD or SSD) for bad sectors. Disk surface test does what it implies - it scans the hard disk surface, checks bad sectors, and marks bad sectors so that the computer knows they will be not used in the future. 

EaseUS Partition Master comes to help with its Surface Test feature. It can identify bad sectors by reviewing the hard drive. When it finds bad sectors, it will mark those sectors with red color so that the system knows not to use them.

This partition manager software allows the bad sectors to be read, the data stored on the bad sector is still accessible, but they cannot be written to.
