I am attemting to convert my C drive to FAT 32, but after doing a scan disk and defrag and attmpting to use teh converter wizard, I get this message: The drive converter cannot convert a drive with a bad cluster mark.  I ran scan disk twice more and got same result.  I did scan wiht PC Doctor and was told there was error at Track 3060, Head 10.  Is there any way to correct hard drive defect or should I give up on FAT 32 and go to Drive Space 3?
