Strictly speaking OT but the machine is running FreeBSD. While copying a file I got I/O errors. The console shows:
>ad0: hard error cmd=read fsbn 31891359 of 31891359-31891486 status=59 error=40 >ad0: hard error cmd=read fsbn 31891231 of 31891231-31891486 status=59 error=40 Given that the disk is just under three months old, is it worth doing anything other than getting it replaced? I have no other disk big enough to old the data on it so unless the supplier sends me a replacement ahead of me returning the faulty one it will be a pain. I have enough space to empty the partition with the error in, but I couldn't find anything in newfs or fsck which would let me map out selected blocks or to do a full write test of each block and map out bad ones. Is there such a beast? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
