I'd like to use
badblocks to check my new drive for bad blocks, but I'm not sure how to choose the values for block size and number of blocks to test in parallel. The man page just says:
-b block-sizeSpecify the size of blocks in bytes. The default is 1024.
-c number of blocksis the number of blocks which are tested at a time. The default is 64.
The drive to test is 2TB large, so I'd like to use values that don't make this process take days. :-)
Sector Sizes: 512 bytes logical, 4096 bytes physical
