The bad blocks on a hard drive is the result of the drive’s wear and tear. Sometimes it will appear if the drive has been shut down incorrectly like when the computer suddenly turns off. If you frequently use your computer and you always shut it down properly but a bad block still appeared, this can be a sign of aging.

You don’t need to worry if your hard drive has several bad blocks or a bad block suddenly appeared. Though bad blocks can never be removed, it can always be patched by scanning your hard drive with CHKDSK, the built-in disk utility of Microsoft Windows. When a bad block is detected, CHKDSK patches that sector on the drive and marks it as unusable.

This protects your files and data from getting written to that damaged sector of the drive. Bad blocks are unavoidable. No matter how careful you are, bad blocks will still appear in your drive in the long run.
