comment How to force a remap of sectors reported in S.M.A.R.T C5 (Current Pending Sector Count)?
I have a 200MB file that has a problem at 87%. I got 3 pending sectors. I tried hashing the file to get good reads and claim reallocated sectors, but they are not getting reallocated! Hashing results: ok, fail, ok, ok, fail, fail. Every time the OS generated several Disk Errors in the event viewer, and on ok hashings, it hung for half a minute at 87%. All hashes are equal. C5 is still 3 and C4 still 0. What's your take on this?

comment Japanese IME on Windows: switch back to romaji input method
Alt+` toggles between alphabetic and hiragana input mode, not between direct-kana. There is a little button on the language bar reading [kana] which is only visible in the 'restored' state (not in the start bar) which you should depress to get rid of it. I'm still looking for the key combination for this button as it often turns on apparently by itself and it is very irritating top keep restoring and re-docking it the langauage bar.

On a macbook with win7, Cmd + ↑ and Cmd + ↓ work like Win + ↑ and Win + ↓, ie. cycle through maximixe, restore and minimize.

comment Audio starts to periodically skip
It finally happened to me again. It took more than a month, the longest time I've seen so far. This tool worked, although I didn't strictly need it as I can hear the skips in the audio. After spending 30 minutes disabling/enabling service and devices, it turned out to be either of my network adapters. Re-enabling didn't bring the glitch back. Thanks.
