Same goes for NTFS... nobody has written any serious utils that detect bad
sectors and marks them as bad. I still have a lot of trouble with this
despite the fact that I have run chkdsk with the "search for bad cluster"
option millions of times.

Yes.. problem is always the time it takes to do something like that :)

"I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I'm driving
Take me on-board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I'd love to see it
I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe
They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely
I'd show them the stars and the meaning of life
They'd shut me away...
... but I'd be alright.
I'm just up-tight"
