short-stroke a disk to avoid bad sectors


I have an older disk that I have been running Scanner on. I got to 94% and scanner found 3 bad sectors (so far)....

Seems a shame to toss out a drive because of 3 bad sectors. The S.M.A.R.T. data looks good with no characteristics predicting failure.

I know that even a few sectors is a huge indicator of failure, but still...

Have any of you ever re-partitioned your disks to specifically avoid a bad area on your disk?
