    While the server is running HOW can I fix those sectors?

    The data is on a new hard-drive and Acronis True Image did a sector by sector copy so they all should be fixed.

    Thanks

    I have had smart errors on a few servers, after having the HD testing nothing wrong was found. I think if you search you will see this porblem with no errors. It would be best to have the drive tested at the data center but other than we turn off smart error checking.
