when I installed linux I ran a disk scan and it found bad blocks :roll: I never had a bad sector on windows.
so I ignored this error and installed Fedora Core1.
My question is: is there a scan disk tool like windows' ? if yes, how can I run it from Linux?
fsck, unmount the partition that you are going to scan (generaly this means using a bootable live cd, lke gentoo's or knoppix's) then run fsck /dev/hda5 (or whatever partition you want to scan/fix!
you can also use man fcsk for more options in a terminal window..
