Bad Block Management in NX2LP

Last Updated: April 04, 2011

Is Bad Block Management performed in NX2LP/NX2LP-Flex?


NX2LP firmware does Dynamic bad block management. The firware will mark bad blocks as it runs over.

Two types of bad blocks are present, ones that come marked from the factory, and ones that the firmware marks.
When the firmware encounters a bad block while running, it marks the block as bad and replaces it with a good block from the spare pool.
