I have a report appearing in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (and by the BIOS at boot time) about one of my drives.
It is an old PATA drive that is non-critical. It says disk failure is imminent, and finds 113 bad sectors. Basically it has had some write errors and relocated some sectors. I want to keep using it - nothing important on it that I don't have copies of elsewhere.
There number of errors is not increasing. I'd like to just watch it and see if more errors occur. Is there a way to reset the alarm so it doesn't nag me until it happens again.
