I have a Hitachi 1TB drive. I ran HD Tune 2.55 and found is has one bad block. I did a low level format and then I formated the drive NTFS and run HD Tune again and no bad blocks were identified. Is it possible to repair a bad block in this manner, or will it show as a bad block again when something gets written to it?
