    Does anyone know of some hard disk formatting or repair software that isn't the osx included disk utility?

    I have a sata disk that has semi died on me, I think it has some bad sectors, I have tried reformatting/repairing (using both apples disk utility and windows xp) to no avail. even after formatting (as msdos) windows will ask to format the disk, and hangs about 2/3rds of the way through formatting.

    OSX disk utility seems to format it ok but half way through installing osx on it the installation hangs.

    Mate, just get a new drive. You don't want to be relying on this thing. By the time you pay for an app such as TechTool Pro or DiskWarrior, you may as well have bought a new disk. :)
