Mount the device read-only first.

This is to check for bad block in a harddisk

Mount the device readonly first

mount -o remount,ro /dev/device

/sbin/badblocks -s -c 1024 -b 4096 -o /tmp/Output.bb /dev/device > status.log

Output will be present in /tmp/Output.bb

Note:e2fsck can also be used to check bad vlocks with the -c option

Cheers
