Redirection of blocks

by deroode In reply to Redirection of blocks

Redirection blocks are assigend to a netware partition at the time it is created. Netware uses these redirection blocks to replace bad blocks that have developed on the disk. When doing a read after write verify the OS checks if data is written to the disk properly, and when not it marks the bad block as bad, and redirects it to the redirection area.

Now when the redirection area fills up this is a sign that the drive will soon fail altogether. Make a backup as quickly as possible, and replace the drive.
