Question How much time does it take to perform "badblocks -w" on 16 GB USB Flash?


It has been more then an hour since I started "badblocks -w" on that USB Flash (16 GB). Will it finish today?

yeah, it takes a long time even in a standard hard disk. I never run badblocks on a USB Flash so I can't say exactly how long it takes, but I won't be surprised if it takes more than a half day...
