Hello folks i have a probem, u see i have 320 GB External HDD , last time i did a scan by Active Disk Monitor , It showed a 54kb Bad sector i.e,. i found a single bad sector, i don't know whether it was marked or not. So i want to know if their is any bad sector marking software or tool , or does the default Xp Chkdsk command does this job, please see the picture:
Please give me some direction regarding this.
If no: then is their other tools that can do this.

Checkdisk does that, but I'd replace the drive. One bad area will usually mean more to follow. If you really want to use this drive, make sure you have a backup of it's contents somewhere else.
Fixed it , used Hard Disk Sentinal and Spin Rite for these and now my Disk is AOK. Thanks anyways.
