Subject: [gentoo-user] Thrashing a drive to flush out problems..
Date: Mon, 25 Jan 2010 14:29:16
1 Hi guys can anyone recommend a tool
2 for thrashing the b*ll*cks of a drive in  way that
3 isn't destructive to the data?
5 I was thinking badblocks with -w but it is destructive and
6 i dont want to do anything that will potentially lower the
7 integrity of my array? (Even tho it is raid6 :) )
9 There must be some bonnie esk tool that will read/write
10 every combination to every block but keep the data safe
11 after to flush out any sector issues etc.
13 Cheers.
