ReiserFS with bad blocks


I have 6 bad blocks on a ReiserFS partition. Luckily enough, the seem to be in the data area, otherwise the partition would be unusable. (See )

Does anybody know how to find out which files are affected by the bad blocks?

By looking at the output of reiserfsck --fix-fixable or --rebuild-tree
May want to check reiserfsck --help for maybe doing a scan and writeing -verbrose results to a file...if at all possible.

thanks for your quick response, but ReiserFS itself doesn't detect any inconsistencies. I discovered one of the bad blocks while accessing one of my files. A low level scan with
badblocks -b 4096 <device>
then revealed the remaining 5 bad blocks.
So I know one of the affected files and want wo know the other ones. Can you help with that?
