Default Utility for read/WRITE test and mark bad sectors

Most disk check utilities like windows scandisk will read test a drive then mark the areas it can not read as bad. This is inadequate since there are times when you will find areas that can be read from, but cannot be written to. I am looking for utility that will do a read/WRITE test and mark bad sectors \ clusters.
