It's not worth worrying about wiping the remapped sectors on a disk - even an

a one-in-a-million shot that anything incriminating is in the sector.

If Bipim is storing his nekked self-portraits on the HD it is very
possible that something incriminating would be stored entirely within
the one bad sector.
