To do this, you need to go to "Tests" from the main menu and select "Read" or "Write/Verify" depending on whether you want to perform a read-only test or a read-write test that can fix some errors automatically. Then you need to specify some parameters such as start sector number, end sector number, block size etc., or use the default values if you are not sure what they mean. Then you need to press F4 or click on "Start" to begin the scan.



  • View the results: As the scan progresses, you will see a graphical map of your hard drive's surface that shows different colors depending on the status of each sector: green for good sectors; red for bad sectors; yellow for remapped sectors; blue for skipped sectors; etc. You will also see some statistics such as elapsed time; current speed; average speed; errors found; etc., at the bottom of the screen.



  • Remap erase or restore bad sectors: If you find any bad sectors on your hard drive's surface during or after the scan; you can try to remap erase or restore them using Victoria's functions under "Remap" from the main menu.



  • Remap: This function allows you to mark bad sectors as unusable so that they are not accessed by your system anymore; thus preventing data loss or corruption; but also reducing your hard drive's capacity by an equivalent amount.



  • Erase: This function allows you to erase bad sectors by filling them with zeros; thus making them appear as good sectors again; but also destroying any data that was stored in them before.



  • Restore: This function allows you to restore bad sectors by copying data from good sectors nearby; thus preserving any data that was stored in them before; but also increasing the risk of data corruption if there are errors in the source sectors.



  • Run SMART tests and view SMART status: Another common task that you can do with Victoria is to run S.M.A.R.T tests on your hard drive that check its health status and predict its failure rate; as well as view detailed information about its S.M.A.R.T attributes such as temperature power-on hours reallocated sectors count etc.; To do this; you need to go to "SMART" from the main menu; then select "SMART Tests" or "SMART Status" depending on what you want to do.
