I have quite a few badblocks at the end of the disk. Is it OK?
I have Seagate Barracuda 40G 7200rpm, it's almost 2 years old. I've checked all 8 partitions and at the end of the 8th "badblocks" started to print its numbers one by one:
from 2527552... until I've canceled checking... the partition size was of 2530206 blocks.
So is it OK to have ~3000 bad blocks at the end of the disk?
PS: I've used this partition to install different distros of Linux and Windows, also thru VM...
Could this spoil the end of the disk?
