Yes, but if I mark them, they will only be separated temporarily, till I completely remove the partition. Am I rigth ? My idea is to find all the bad blocks on my hd and 'catch' them on a separate one. I could even format ext2 and reinstall linux if I would know that my idea is possible.
I have same situation as you, long ago bad blocks appeared, but they do not spread. So I want to get rid of them once and for all
