First off, not sure whether this would fall under software or hardware, but..
I'm looking for a piece of software that will scan a hard drive and test the latency for each block and indicates bad blocks. I have a program that does this exact same thing for windows, called HDDScan
. I also has a really neat graph, which lets you see how the latencies changed over the scan. It also reads smart error, but the smart portion is no so necessary, as I can get that another way.
Currently I plan on putting it on a repair SquashFS (Parted Magic) on a flash drive. So I would prefer just the binary if possible, but a .deb would would if i extracted it.
