Damaged Blocks...i need help


#1

Hello…

i need some help

Yesterday my disk started to disconnect and then it says that chkdsk must scan it…

So…it scanned and said that there are 4KB in Damaged Blocks (or sectors)
I lost the warranty(yeah i’m a fool) and i hear that i need to do a Low-Level Format… is there anything from WD to do this?
I hear about someone for Seagate called MaxBlast…but…i need it for my WD 5000 AAKS…

apologies for my bad english

please someone tell me
