Don't trash an iPod with bad blocks on the drive
Authored by: Kostecki on Apr 22, '13 11:31:04AM

I'm writing here as a last try, and i hope that someone can, at least, answer my question.

I have an iPod Classic 80gb with the exact same problem - part of the drive is.. no good, and i've run some tests that showed me errors at around the 17gb mart +/- a few gb.

So.. Is it possible to JUST leave, say 5gb of free space at the 15-20GB mark instead of 0-20GB, or do i not understand how harddrives work?
