The service tech here suggests using a bad blocks file from any disk, then
making the disk into one large paging file and running fix-fep-file on that.
Fix-fep-file will lock out the real bad blocks. The cost is that some good
blocks will be marked bad, but you save keying in the list.
Not such a good idea. Bad blocks from the manufacturer are generated
using extensive testing of the disk drive. Fix-fep-file will not fix
bad tracks. This is not a recomended way of finding your bad blocks.
