File system for HDD with random appear BadBlocks.


Please suggest file system for HDD with random appear BadBlocks.
I have HDD 500Gb from notebook 2,5 inch with badblocks.
I check it, but sometime appear new badblocks.
I think need repartition hdd to 2x partition and use RAID mdadm (Mirror), with effective space 250Gb, Or use file system with redundancy data storage.
Very good if FileSystem automatic mark badblocks in file system and never use again this block.

If BadBlocks are starting to appear, then the drive has suffered some kind of damage, has a bad read-write head, or in general has some type of defect, and should be replaced.

No file-system is going to be 100% effective in dealing with Bad Blocks.

If you have an SCSI/SAS class drive, it MIGHT be theoretically possible to instigate a Low-Level Format but those often don't entirely fix the problem, and if you have an IDE/SATA drive, you're out of luck anyway.

Replacement drives are cheap. Get a new drive and start fresh.
