    Will my SSD automatically remap/avoid a PHYSICAL bad sector?

    Windows 10 20H2 19042.844, Crucial P1 500GB NVME (512MB DRAM cache)

    I finally tracked down the cause of my BSODs to a bad block, according to event viewer: "The device, \Device\Harddisk0\DR0, has a bad block" (event ID 7). I have also run the Victoria surface test, which identified a 4GB section that is either logically or physically defective. I also ran chkdsk over 3 times, with varying commands like /r, /f/ and /b. It detected 0 bad sectors and said everything was fine, which indicates to me that it's a physical defect since chkdsk only fixes logical errors.

    But I've also heard that once Windows detects a bad sector (which it has done, despite what happened in chkdsk), it will stop reading/writing to it and remap to overprovision. However, the errors keep popping up hundreds of times a day, so I'm not sure if the automatic marking/remap has happened?

    The SSD should be managing bad areas internally.

    The key is on no account clone the drive or the bad block will be transfered to the hd unless you take special precautions
