   I've had similar problems with Quantums on wcarchive. With AWRE and ARRE
enabled, even if the drive is clearly able to read the block sometimes, it will
never do a reallocate. Very annoying. My only solution thus far has been to
RMA the drives with Quantum.
   It would be nice if FreeBSD had a way to force a reallocation...
