HDD firmware has a reallocate correction limit for bad sectors, when this limit ends then files will be saved in these bad sectors?

drive will report SMART failure at this point. Is this still about your prehistoric hard drives?

If the HDD has SMART then does it automatically allocate and isolate bad sectors preventing files from being saved to those bad sectors of the HDD?

From what year SMART is present in the HDDS?

When the table of reallocate bad sectors of the firmware is full will the files be saved in the bad sectors?

hopefully the list will be full and then windows surface scan will take over and mark the bad sectors in the partition table. then the drive will continue to work normally. you will start to loose drive capacity, but with drives so big, it does not make any difference.

With app spares reallocated you should wonder if you want to continue using a drive.

my doubt is, when a hdd has badbloks bad sectors what will happen and when the firmware table is full what will happen? is it possible for the file to be saved in bad sectors by corrupting it and after that burned to DVD?

if the data is saved on a bad block, or a bad block develops. the computer will try and read that sector several times and peace together the data. Then it will use that data, mark the sector bad and carry on. Most of the time the data is corrupted and not usable if its a program. If its a video file then it might not do anything, smaller size files like text could miss or show strange characters, but most of the time the data is corrupted. Better to always make a backup of your data.

the files I refer to are compressed roms files, emulators compacted and executable programs, when the firmware relocation table is full what will happen to these files will they be burned to the DVD without me noticing?

Yes they will, or the corrupted files will. Rom files, compressed files are binary and delicate, a bad cluster will mess them up. Keep a backup. You can tell when a file might have bad sectors because the the computer will take too long to copy a single file, or tell you the file cannot be copied because it can't read from the drive properly.

it should be okay. If there was a problem copying, the computer will stop the copy and tell you it can't read that file from the disk.

What appears when a file is downloaded to a defective sector of the HDD? what appears when a file in a good sector becomes a bad sector and then is copied to the DVD? will be copied corrupted? what barriers and protection for this problem do not harm exe and zip files?
