Now it's several hours into

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

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



I was told disk tracks are 1MB in size. So use that size or more, better

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M status=progress

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. :-(


That disk is asking for retirement fast.

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
-sh: smartctl: not found
root@azbme:~# smart --help
-sh: smart: not found

Too bad. Same here, but terrestrial TV.
