    when using scandisk with winXP on my boot drive, the results are logged
    in the event viewer so i can check how many bad sectors etc. but the
    same report doesn't appear happen when doing a full surface scan on my
    2nd hard drive...? after 3 years of use i think the 2nd drive [WD800JB]
    is starting to whine louder so i'd like to be able to find out if it has
    any bad sectors... any info much apprec.
