I've got a corrupted drive which i am unable now to clear. Whenever i
try to fdisk it then relabel it i get an error that partition c does not
cover the entire disk and that this might interfere with system utilities.
I've tried:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad1 bs=512 count=1
and various combinations thereof, without success.



If I have any questions about whether the disk is usable, I usually
go to the manufacturer's disk tools. Sometimes called a "low level"
format, or disk diagnostic.

Usually, they have a DOS based tool that you download from their
website and it will be able to test and reformat the drive.
