Have a new Pegasus3, less than a month.  Media Patrol shows bad sectors on a drive PD 1.

bad sectors?  On a new drive?  Need I worry?  It's barely begun to run Media Patrol for the very first time and is only 16% through and already finding issues.

Insights appreciated.  Thanks.


Oh, and my valid email ID and Password don't seem to work on your support webpage. Help.
