I guess all you gotta do it scandisk with the full surface scan. Then when you give it to him, roll up your sleeves and say:
"Spots? I spit on your spots!"
and hand him the drive.

:dodgy: Some of these G|A threads are starting to get weird.
Anyway, one thing to remember, if your hard drive does have bad "spots", scandisk can't do a whole lot. It will block them off so no data is corrupted, but they are still there. Also, if there are bad "spots, something is causing them. A hard drive that is starting to get a lot of errors is near the end of its lifespan.
