    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?
