Bad sectors as well all know are sectors on hard drive that cannot be written to (due to possibly physical damage). Now I know there are Linux tools such as badblocks and chkdsk on windows.
Question: If I run chkdsk /B on entire disk in windows - will those sectors get marked as "bad" under ubuntu as well? My understanding is that the data that specifies where those bad sectors are located is written in partition table so that the file system knows not to use those bad sectors. My intuition says that say if i run badblocks on ubuntu and mark those sectors as bad - windows won't know about this until i mark those very same sectors as bad again using chkdsk because the partition table for ubuntu is different from the partition table of windows?
Anyone has any certain knowledge on how this works?
