I was doing a zero filling with verification with a SATA drive, and it was going at 2.1 - 2.2 mb/s in HD Tune Pro - it felt a little slow to me. At this rate this drive will take forever to complete so I was wondering if anyone has an idea how fast it should be doing. I was going to toss this as it had a few bad sectors but I read that zero filling might be able to fix them. Does it help bad sectors and how fast should something like this be going with the bad sectors?
Thanks in Advance
