    I'm erasing a disk with Disk Utility using the "write zeros" option. It's supposed to label any bad sectors unusable, but when it's done, will it also tell me if there were any bad sectors?

    OK, is Drive Genius an appropriate program for this? (scanning for bad sectors) If not, can anyone recommend something?
