     162
     163A good listing of such utilities can be found [http://www.benchmarkhq.ru/english.html?/be_hdd2.html here].
    180164Unfortunately most of these are for MS operating systems, but most can
    181165be run from a MS-DOS boot disk.
    182 The <a href="http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/"><img src="pics/linkext.gif" width="11" height="11" border="0" alt="extLink: " />UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD)</a>
    183 
     166
     167The [http://ubcd.sourceforge.net/ UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD)]
    184168includes most of these disk-testing utilities and many other useful
    185169diagnostic tools ready to boot from CD or USB memory stick.
    186170The UBCD can be customized by adding other images, like one
    187 <a href="faq.html#bootable">containing smartmontools</a>.

    192175please report them to the

     179These utilities have an important role to fill.  If your disk has
    196180bad sectors (for example, as revealed by running self-tests with
    197181smartmontools) and the disk is not able to recover the data from those
    198 sectors, then the disk will <em>not</em> automatically reallocate those
     182sectors, then the disk will ''not'' automatically reallocate those
    199183damaged sectors from its set of spare sectors, because
    200184forcing the reallocation to take place may entail some loss of data.
    201185Because the commands that force such reallocation are
