So I was running a personal server to host my (and a friends) email at work. Unfortunatly one of the sectors went bad.

I also received my new bike, so I ended up putting that together before switching my email services off to one of my work servers.

I wonder if I should just continue forwarding my mail through a work machine or if I should fix my personal server.

It's a long, long time since I had a bad sector or any sector level corruption at a hardware level. I think it must have been when I was still subjected to DOS 6.2. Then of course with software induced errors, everytime I go near a FAT based OS I seem to find errors.

Do you know if it a hardware fault or (dare I suggest it?) a bug or software error in the filing system of some kind?

It could be a conflict between the bios, the ide controller, and the OS. But I was leaning against that idea since it was working reasonably well for some time, and it also makes unhappy noises when it's trying to access the bad sector.

Though I was thinking that when I got a chance I'd try reformatting the drive and see if that helped.
