I have a disk with bad sectors and purchased the software to try and clone. I start the clone process and it begins the process and gets to 7% and stops and there is no activity on the drives.  Any help would be apprecaited.

We need to know a bit more about the state of the disk before advice can be given, but it already seems that the disk is in bad shape. If possible, post the log files that DiskPatch creates, we really need the info that's in there. Also, create one of these:

Post the result, please.
Is there any additional info on the disk's background? What happened before you decided to clone the disk?

I will collect the log information and try the smartcheck.  I dont think the drive is in that bad of shape, it does boot up and the applications run just fine, i believe there are just some bad sectors.  i am afraid to mark them bad or do anything with the drive until we have a copy.  Is the log required to repair?

Hello,

Well, we need the log to see if DiskPatch stops, and if so, why it stops.

Why? What are the actual symptoms?

You could try the read-only disk scan in DiskPatch, see if it gets passed the errors.

If the disk isn't in really bad shape then marking the sectors as bad (usimg the DiskPatch read/write scan, I am not referring to chkdsk!) will give you the exact same results as cloning the disk. A sector that can't be read during a read/write pass or a clone pass yields the same result: data from that sector can not be recovered.
