i had a hdd enclosure and accidently kicked it, hdd started smoking and is dead.

i took out the hdd and put in a spare i had. it was acting funny telling me that rar files are corrupt when extracting and then rebooting the enclosure would make the files that were corrupt not corrupted anymore but then others ended up being corrupt. weird.

so i put it inside the pc and ran hdtune, the smart table looks all messed up, i also ran hdd regenerator and it didn't find and bad blocks.

i'm thinking that the enclosure might have messed with the drives smart table.

Is it possible to have the drive check itself, maybe have the read errors reset and have it rescan the sectors it marked bad?

Thanks
