Are you using GPT for those extra gigs?I also read somewhere that the surface test or sector reader is the same thing as a wipe but it doesn't delete anything.Is this right?

Spinrite is a good tool for maintaining disks, it will flip every bit on the disk and if it can't, it keeps trying until it does, the terminator of disk maintenance / recovery programs :)

Normal MBR akaik, I think its 2.2TB+ that needs GPT
