Now it's several hours into

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1 bs=32768

Then no point in the above, but you should read it, anyway.

And give dd 1 MB size at least (one track).


which reports no progress state.

The LEVEL of information to print to stderr; 'none'
suppresses everything but error messages, 'noxfer' suppresses the final
transfer statistics, 'progress' shows periodic transfer statistics

# smartctl -x /dev/sdb | grep rent_Pending reports

197 Current_Pending_Sector -O--CK 200 200 000 - 0

so what needed doing seems to have been done already, but I plan to let dd
to completion before beginning restore process.

Don't forget to run "smartctl --test=long /dev/sdb".

# smartctl -s on -t offline /dev/sdf

Current pending sector and offline uncorrectable have gone from 0 to 53. :-(

And later make sure the smartd daemon is enabled to run weekly at least
the short test.

It's out of a satellite STB DVB receiver that has no smart* to run.
# smartctl --help
