I have never heard of this one but have heard great things about one called Spinrite. Here's a link.
I am a diehard user of Drive Image...great program and wish I had an answer. I know some Seagate drives have "spare" sectors to which data can be relocated if areas go bad. It may be that Drive Image is not able to detect these relocated areas if this is what happened. Drive Image will usually give errors if too many bad sectors are found and will not complete. You might check the web site (now at Symantec, bummer) for information.
I have a computer with a seagate 40 gib hd and i want to image it, so i got another exact model new hd and using the Diskwizard from seagate i copied it but when i switched them i got errors on the new hd and it reached the desktop but with errors and it does not continue, opearting system win 98se , i have done this many times w/o a problem, so i ran the "seatools" from Seagate and i got this error message "invalid free space value 1", so i guess this is the reason i can not copy or image this hd exactly to the other one, i used "drive image 2002" wich is for win 98 se and before start imaging from the source to the target i got a message saying we found sector 63 corrupted "do you want to fix yes or no " i answered no cause i am afraid of damaged the original hd and it is working fine, i just wanted to image it to installed the same imaged hd in another computer, so here is my problem , i just found another utility that i have to pay $59.99 and it is named "HDD REGENERATOR SHELL" according to them it should fix these problems the website is http://dposoft.net please if you can help i will apreciate it a lot if you want to check what they say about it, check the link and please let me know if this will help.
thanks a lot
