    Just upgraded to RHEL 6 and exposed badsectors on my harddrive


    I had RHEL4 on this PC and had fixed/marked the bad sectors with a command line tool that I can't remeber. Used it once and haven't had to for a long time. Ya the PC is old a Pentium 4.

    Can any one help?

    Imho, if a harddrive reports bad sectors to the OS, it is time to replace it.
    It wont get better and thus any data on that disk is not safe.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
