    Hi,

    If the drive has many unreadable sectors then there is not much you can do. Bad sectors will slow the process down a lot.

    You can try skipping the bad part of the disk by starting and stopping the search at different locations.

    Use the OPTIONS > ADVANCED > PROMPT FOR START SECTOR option to specify where to start the search on the disk.
