Are you ready? Let's read!

As a regular Windows PC user, one of the common errors to encounter is the “disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters” error. This error appears when Windows does not find sufficient space on your disk or due to hard disk failure.

How to Fix the Issue?


Exercise Patience

When this error appears on your screen, you should wait for the process to run completely - do not close the window immediately. Sometimes, if you allow the ongoing process to run completely, the error may fix itself. However, if the error is not fixed, then you may need to change your hard drive.

Replace Your Hard Drive

If you continue facing the “disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters” error, then you should backup your important files and replace the hard drive on your PC. You must run a comprehensive backup to ensure that all your files are safe. If you ignore backing up your hard drive, you’d lose all your files and documents.

Interestingly, you can create several backup copies for free using DiskInternals Partition Recovery. This means you have to create multiple backup copies of your hard drive for free. DiskInternals Partition Recovery is an advanced software program developed for Windows PC users. It comes with a ton of features and also integrates a Wizard that guides the users through data recovery processes.

With DiskInternals Partition Recovery, all you need to do is to create a "Disk Image," which is a cloned version of your hard drive. This way, you can easily mount the disk image when you install a new hard drive and have all your files back. Below are the steps to create a disk image with DiskInternals Partition Recovery.

How to Backup Your Files?

  • Download and install DiskInternals Partition Recovery
  • Launch the software and close the “Wizard” interface that’d launch automatically
  • Select the faulty hard drive and right-click on it
  • Choose “Create Image” from the context menu
  • Follow the on-screen prompt to create a backup of the drive.

Note: Disk images must be saved in secondary storage; you can't save a backup copy of a hard drive in the same hard drive.

What More?

When you have backed up the faulty drive, you can go ahead to remove it from your PC and install another hard drive. After installation, you need to re-install DiskInternals Partition Recovery and mount back the disk image you created for the old drive. Once this is done, you'd have all your files and data back to your PC exactly the way they were on the old drive.

More so, DiskInternals Partition Recovery can help you to recover lost and deleted files. This implies that if you lost some important files - or even an entire partition - you can get them back using this software. It supports all Windows OS versions and also supports various file formats.
