    Question Once I accidentally made a 200GB bad sector. Now I need to get rid of it...

    Salaam my brothers,

    A long time ago I had a Dual Boot with something based on Ubuntu and Windows 7.
    Windows was installed on my SSD and Ubuntu on a 200GB partition on my HDD.
    After some time Windows began messing with me and I messed up my Ubuntu installation (deleted the session and messed up with my self made, nothing really bad). I was way too lazy to fix it and I was busy with things so I booted up from my legal Windows CD and at the installation process I couldn't see my Linux partition. So I rebooted into a live CD and deleted the ext4 or 3 Linux partitions. After that I came back in my Windows installation and I still didn't saw that extra 200gb. I didn't had a lot of time so I reinstalled Windows 7.
    Previous week I Windows messed again with me so I installed something good on it. (opensuse ofc)
    Now I really need those 200GB back. Some disk utilities said it is now a bad sector but it could also be a superblock? I already googled a lot but I can't really find a solution.
    I hope someone can help me to fix this. Then I won't try to bomb you ;).

    Many thanks!!!

    First I had a dualboot with Windows 7 and *ubuntu based OS.
    I have 2 drives: 60GB SSD and 1.5GB HDD. Windows 7 was installed on the SSD and I used on the HDD 1.3TB space for Windows. On the other 200GB of the HDD I had Installed the *ubuntu based OS.

    After some time Windows started messing with me (it just became unstable) and I messed a bit with my ubuntu based distro. So I wanted to Install Windows 7 fully again on my computer without a Dualboot.

    I booted up to my Windows 7 installation. I didn't saw the 200GB from Ubuntu. So I booted up from a live CD, ubuntu 11.04 I guess and I deleted my ubuntu partition to free space using GParted.
    After this I booted into the Windows 7 installation and I still didn't saw those 200GB. I didn't had time for being geeky so I installed Windows 7 on the SSD and used the SSD and HDD. After some time Windows messed (again) with me and I installed OpenSuse. At the installation process I still coulnd't find the 200GB.

    I hope you can understand this better my friend.

    Mmm.


    Please run this in Linux and post results here:

    [CODE]
    lsblk --output NAME,FSTYPE,LABEL,MOUNTPOINT,SIZE
    [CODE]

    and please do so inside code tags (the '#' button in the forum editor).

    You broked yer code tags.

    So, I reprints:

    To the OP:

    Open a terminal window and at the command line prompt, do:
    Code:
    lsblk --output NAME,FSTYPE,LABEL,MOUNTPOINT,SIZE
    Post your output here in between code tags (but not broken ones, okay?).
