A bad sector checker program in Macs? by Ant[_3_]

How reliable is NTFS crosslinked cluster detection and fix? by Yousuf Khan[_2_]
I remember that crosslinked clusters were a major problem in the days of FAT, chkdsk would fix the crosslinking, but it seemed like chkdsk was just guessing at where the files originally belonged, and sometimes it would guess wrong. I recently got some of the crosslinking errors under NTFS, or...
