I guess what I'm really asking is would HDTools, for example, actually create a hardfile with sectors flagged as bad from a hard disk with bad sectors? Would it not quit when it encounters a bad sector? (I haven't had any Amiga hard drives with bad sectors, so I really don't know.)

If so, then what the OP wants could be conjured up from a good RDB image and knowledge of how the sectors are mapped as bad in the RDB.

In this way I imagine it would only be possible to mark the block as physically unreadable, but might that not be sufficient to test the OP's proposed Disk-Monitor/Editor error-trapping routines?
