No, the image cannot be mounted in R-Drive Image as a read-write disk, only as a read-only one.
But I suggest you do that another way. You create an image
in R-Studio which fills bad sectors with a predefined pattern, then open the image in R-Studio, when edit it in the Text/hex editor
You may then restore the partition to the hard drive using the R-Studio Copy module
, although I'd rather test it on another disk until i'm sure that everything goes well.
