How to recheck bad clusters

I remember back in DOS days there were a few
programs that would recheck "bad" cluster to see
if they could be "good"...  With the advent of
FAT32 I need to rid one of my partitions of "bad"
clusters without a doing a LL format...  Is there a program
out there that will confirm whether a cluster is
still bad? or, can you tell FAT32 to skip the bad cluster
check since all the "bad" clusters are in empty areas?

Use PowerQuest's Partition Magic program.
Among its many features, it help you to retest your bad sectors.
Good luck.
