comment How to force a remap of sectors reported in S.M.A.R.T C5 (Current Pending Sector Count)?
@MarkJeronimus The only think i can think is that there are pending sectors in an area outside of a partition (i.e. outside of "Drive C"). Using something like Western Digital's hard drive tool to write zero's to the entire drive - including partition tables and boot sectors.

@MarkJeronimus Try using a file wiper, which will write all zeros (or all random data) to the file. That should get the drive to realize you don't care about those sectors anymore.

comment Cannot disable DPI scaling for Visual Studio 2012
The real reason, for those that live in the real world, is that every C# language feature starts at -100 points. Microsoft has finite resources, and a feature has to be worth it.
