CHKDSK may be old, but it can still help you scan and fix bad sectors on your mechanical hard drives. Here's how to use CHKDSK in Windows 10.
Windows Surface Scanner Version 2.20 This software will read each sector of a physical drive that is currently mounted on an XP, Vista, or Windows 7 operating system.

If you have several bad sectors it would be wise to contact a data recovery company about hard drive recovery.
Windows Surface Scanner Documentation Windows surface scanner is a data recovery utility to help locate unreadable blocks on your hard drive and relate those blocks to certain parts of the file system. This tool can be used to diagnose certain characteristics that may be exhibited upon boot-up or during service that are directly related to unreadable blocks on a hard drive. As an example, if a drive has an unreadable block where the Master Boot Record is located this will cause the system to hang on boot. If the drive is a secondary or slave drive the drive may also be exhibited as a raw device. With this being said this documentation is divided into two parts. Part one will be how to use the software and how to read some rudimentary error messages.
