When there is a corrupt disk sector and read fails. How often does Alcohol 120 try to read that sector?

 

I am asking because I want to understand how Alcohol 120 works.

Options>Reading tab>Number of retries before reading error: Default value is zero but you can change it.

Is it good to leave it to 0 when reading scratchy disks or should I change it?

You can change it with the hope that it will help reading them but the results are not guarantied.
