Cloning to a drive with bad sectors
I am trying to clone my HDD to a new SSD using AOMEI PA, however every time I do I get an error 34 indicating bad sectors on the destination drive. I have scanned the drive with the same program and indeed it detects bad sectors, so I tried to use the "Check partition amd fix errors by using chkdsk.exe" function. After that the next scan (not fast one) didn't show any damaged sectors, but trying to clone the drive again still turned up the exact same error 34. Can I somehow still get the Partition Assistant to clone the drive to the damaged one, or is there some other method I could achieve this?
In addition, please also try to use AOMEI Backupper to do the clone:
I will try the other program and get the logs tomorrow when I next have access to that computer.
Every time the PC was rebooting after the failed attempt the reboot took over 15 minutes before I would eventually decide to force-restart the PC. Could it be the reason no logs were generated?

Did you still get the error code 34 under WinPE? If yes, we need to analyze the logs under WinPE. Please boot into WinPE media to do the clone again, if you still get code 34, please Click "Windows Command Line", Input "notepad", Click File-->Open on the txt document, find the log folder are in "Computer\Boot(X:)\ Program Files\AOMEIPartAssist", Copy the log folder to another drive.
After that, please boot into the computer, and then send us the log folder of WinPE.
