Remapping bad sectors - back in the days of SCSI drives - you were able to do what was called a " low level format " which would in effect remap bad sectors on the drive.

I don't see a way to do this with newer software such as disk utility etc.

Example: a friend of mine accidentally tripped the cord to his hard drive in the middle of the drive writing to the disk. Of course this is bad. Remapping the bad sectors would insure that the drive was working properly and not use any potential bad sectors.

Q: How can we remap bad sectors on today's ata and sata drives?

Thanks in advance for your help - RevDave
