SubjectDisk MTBF
Date
We were having some discussions on disk MTBF and somebody suggested this:

-- Have a daemon that refreshes every sector on a disk once per month

This would re-write sectors so as to decrease the probability of a read
error due to magnetic loss.

Comments anybody? Is this feasible to do?
