Is there a way for me to scan for bad sectors on my WBFS HD?

    Recently there's this problem that games that used to work now fail to go past a the first loading screen. Everything was fine until I did one of these things that may have something to do with the problem.

    Removed Call of Duty BlackOps (bad dump)
    Reinstalled Call of Duty BlackOps (works)
    Installed patch for BlOps online (including the wads for Shopping Channel)
    Removed FF Chocobo Dungeon (bad rip)
    Installed Metroid Prime Trilogy

    Maybe none of these are the problems, but I'm giving whatever information I have.

    I recommend using a FAT32-partition + WBFS-files in the future.

    use "wwt check --auto" to find allocation errors.
    use "wwt verify --auto" to verify all discs (recalc checksums and compare) this zakes a lot of time because each disc is completely decrypted.
    The commands must be run in admin mode.

    I hope I'm doing this right.

    I went to this page to download the Cygwin (Windows) version and extracted it. I then opened wit-console in the bin folder.

    After typing "wwt check --auto", it says
    Summary of WBFS Check: 956 errors found:
    4 used WBFS sectors marked as free!
    485 free WBFS sectors marked as used!
    466 WBFS sectors are used by 2 or more discs!
    Total: 39 discs are invalid!

    Does this mean that 39 of my isos are messed up? If so, how do I fix this?
    Typing in wwt recover, repair, verify all say "no WBFS partitions found -> abort"
