Skip over skipped sectors

Postby msurgeon » 22.01.19, 19:14

Is there a way to ignore previously skipped sectors when re-reading? Seems like there should be but haven't figured it out. Thanks for tips.

Yes there is - use the function "Create submap using the legend" in DE

The submapping using legend only allows me to make a map of all skipped sectors but not to eliminate them from further reading attempts. This is what I'm trying to figure out. Thanks for responding.

In Data Extractor task parameters, there are two options 'Skip rectors with...'. Do they work?

For me submap using legend does what it says. Need to understand what you mean by "skipped" :)
If you mean to skip sector on reading error, and never touch a sector marked as reading error again, then there is a option in task parameters as Dmitriy_TS said.

What I am trying to do is to skip unprocessed, in other words, unread sectors that I have skipped over on purpose in reading. These are sectors that I chose in task parameters to be skipped over after a read error. Re-reading these sectors will just result in more read errors. These are not sectors with read errors. There is no provision in DE task parameters that will do this, nor is there a way of using the submap/legend feature to do this. Frankly, this doesn't appear something that's do-able. Unless I'm missing something?

Open object map, create submap of skipped sectors (yellow / white / red whichever you need) and select 'change legend' - set all to modified (blue colour) and they will be ignored in future scans.

This should work.
