Formatting issuse!

Evening all

Is it possible for me to repair (format) a damaged section of the hard drive so i can avoid formatting the whole thing and avoid wiping the data stored on that hard drive?

Thanks in advance

Not if its all one partition i dont think,formating it would wipe the lot,you could run scandisk/chkdisk depending on your OS and ask it to try and fix bad sectors it may take a while and may not work.
