I have a 1 Tbyte drive which has been reporting exactly 1 bad sector for at least the last 6 months. It always shows up on the gnome panel as the drive troubles applet (no name -- it doesn't identify itself), and every few days I check it. Always exactly 1 bad sector. I ought to fix it so as to report only increases in the number of bad sectors, but I probably never will.
If you could find that bad sector and rewrite it, then the drive would remap it to a spare sector and you wouldn't be bothered by it any more. Tracking those down can be just _tons_ of fun, and sometimes you learn more about filesystem structure than you ever wanted to know. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
