    if your drive has bad sectors, then there is nothing you can do except make a backup, and replace the drive. Modern drives are self-repairing... If they get noticable bad-sector, then they cannot repair it.

    scandisk will mark those are bad sectors and won't write data to them.. you can continue to use the drive, but i would look into replacing it in the near future.
