HDD Regenerator is a powerful hard drive repair utility that specializes in identifying and repairing bad sectors on your computer’s hard drive. It is known for its unique, intuitive user interface, which makes using the application a breeze. However there are sometimes issues that may be confusing and which may cause some users to have questions.
The key reason that customers may have questions about this program is in regard to “delay” messages that appears after the regeneration process. It helps to understand what these delays are, and then you will feel more confident in using this utility to correct these problems.
Delays are basically a warning that a hard drive has sectors with longer than usual access times. In other words, it takes the OS longer to locate and access files in these sectors. And while thousands of delays could mean disaster for your hard drive, it’s not at all unusual to see warnings about these delays popping up from time to time.
More often than not, repeated delay messages happen when someone is trying to regenerate on an external hard drive. This can be resolved by taking the external drive out of its case and hooking it up as an internal hard drive.
If the delays are happening on an internal hard drive, you can still continue with the regeneration process. Simply choose the option “Regenerate all sectors in a range.” This will allow HDD Regenerator to continue scanning and repairing the hard drive.
Also, you can regenerate the delays with “scan and repair” mode, if your hard disk drive doesn’t contain bad sectors and was completely scanned at least once.
Don’t let a few delay error messages alarm you. These are very common, and unless these delays happen repeatedly, your hard drive will probably be fine. However, if the same delays keep happening, it may be time to do an immediate back-up and replace that hard drive, in order to prevent permanent data loss.
