Hi,

Got this bad sector in a seagate 40G hard disk. Is there any tool
under linux to scan the surface of the disk and mark the sectors bad
in file system (or at even lower level like seatools does)?

Running FC5.

In the mean while I am doing a dd on that partition to copy the data
and try to recover it from there.

Thanks
Vijay

Yes, run the badblocks command.

If there is no important data on it, do this:

799] What is the best way to verify a hard drive has no bad blocks? /usr/bin/time badblocks -b 512 -s -v -w /dev/hdg
