Bad sectors need to be written out of the drive's sector table. Most newer drives reserve sectors and table space for that purpose...

Vinod SpinRite 6.0 by Steve Gibson has been keeping my drives running for years and it has even fixed corrupted drives (run it on lvl #5 and it will often make bad sectors good also). One drive was even corrupted two times in the same year durring power blackouts! Works for all/any OS or file formats...people have even used it on iPod drives. http://www.grc.com baligavinod June 6, 2007 12:16:11 PM thanks everyone....i ll try some of those... leo2kp a b G Storage June 7, 2007 3:18:40 AM I've heard good things about spinrite and have considered it myself.
