Thanks for the responses dwit and retiredquest. I let it sit overnight and checked it in the Am. Says it rescued 320009MB out of 320072MB. Now it's in the middle of "trimming failed blocks", so i still haven't tested it out yet. I hope those 63MB weren't important! Wait a minute, i just realized that my "rescued" size is slowly going up during this phase. I hope that's a good sign! Oh, and yes i tried kickstart. It was the one for the HDD....KS 54 i believe. That gave me a bunch of "fail 4's".
