http://ubuntuforums.org – hi there, I'm getting this message constantly about the hard drive that Ubuntu is installed on. Message: 'Disk has many bad sectors'. I've screenshot to make it clearer. I'd like to mark the bad sectors and fix or remove them if possible so I tried to boot off the cd and Code: sudo fsck -pcfv /dev/sdb I then get the error message about superblock missing etc. I should rather try Quote: sudo e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/sdb however that does nothing.. note: I ran scandisk on the hard drive (Hardware)
