can there be glitches in the system, if you use a hdd with beaten sectors as a media partition?
With this approach, I would have paid attention to how you use the app, stumbling on broken(-e) block.
And so, under their responsibility, with their data, of course, can use.
If it is on the disk nothing, can additionally take R. tester
and start at first record in the entire volume (destroy the data), and then reads the entire drive.
It will be a normal "stress test" on the drive at the same time see if he can handle it at all. In the future can also use R. the tester to monitor the health of the disk.
