Floppy disk Bad Block on HD

Hi,

My Sistem Desktop A1200, KS3.0 WB3.1

I own a 1,4GB 2,5" internal Hard Disc connected with IDE WINNER.
It seems to have a phisical error on a specific zone; I said
"phisical" because formatting it (no Fast) sometimes it scratches
in the same zone giving read/write errors.

Using HDToolBox too the verify procedure sometimes scratches and
gives errors on the same blocks. Into HDToolBox there is
a procedure that allows to modify bad block list; does it
work? And how can use it since it aks for sectors, tracks, cylinder
but no blocks?

If you have it formatted with FFS, and if you can get hold of Quarterback Tools, try that. There is a function that will examine your HD and automatically mark bad blocks out of service.
