I recently bought a pefectly good, used 1.6 Gb Fujitsu laptop drive, but just before the previous owner handed it over, the idiot low-level formatted it.
Now its covered in bad sectors. Even after running scandisk about 50 times, there are still many clusters that must re-try many times, which is very slow.
Is there some way of marking these slow clusters as bad as well???
