SCSI - Bad Sectors

By robbinsr ·
Is it true that you cannot scan a SCSI drive for bad sectors? I heard that SCSI hard drive hide all bad sectors and a tool like Norton's Disk Doctor, SpinRite, or Disk Checker 2000 would prove useless on a SCSI drive.

That would be news to me; SCSI is just another way to connect a hard drive to your computer. more to the point, Seagate even has checklilsts, such as

that treat ATA and SCSI equally while diagnosing disk problems.

False. You can use the controller's option to verify the drivers media. If there are bad sector(s), the controller will alert you for action. therefor, you can relocate the data from the bad setor(s).
