Bad Sectors on IDE Amiga Drives
Ok, on the PC you run Scandisk, WTF do you do on an amiga?!
I remember I kept getting more and more and eventually had to partition of chunks of the drive trying to avoid them till it just got too hard.
So, erm... what are you supposed to do?
Thanks Guys (DONT DELETE THAT DAMNIT)

Seems to me there were at least a couple of utils out there:
Quaterback Tools was one I remember using, of course Disksalv might also help you out.
I'm sure others have more info on this as well
Also as side note, you could throw the drive into a PC as a secondary or slave drive and use some Windows/Dos/*nix apps to check out the drive

i'm sure i used to use disksalv back in the day, it creates a file called bad.blocks or something which sits on top of all the bad sectors, thus keeping them from being used.
