I'm migrating from an HDD with NTFS that has a number of bad sectors.
I've just run
chkdsk /r (from ERD 6.0 x32) on it to make sure they all are properly marked as such.
Yet, when running
ntfsclone --save-image <...> without
--rescue (from System Rescue CD 4.6.0), I get "the disk has N bad sectors" warning (which is fine) but then -
ERROR: the disk is faulty <...>.
The questions are:
What does the error mean? Does it just mean that
ntfsclonereads all the sectors (rather than only those containing data) regardless of the
--save-imageflag and bumped into the 1st bad one (so the user data is perfectly fine, and the backup with
--rescuewould still be sound) or that I've got yet another, unmarked bad sector?
If it's the former, can
ntfsclonebe directed to ignore marked bads and only choke on unmarked ones?
