I've had a hard drive with *many* bad sectors, and still smartctl
reported "Completed without error". I believe this means that there are
still spare sectors available.

I suggest "badblocks -n", as I said in another message. This may also
detect more bad sectors. What does "5 Reallocated_Sector_Ct" say?
