comment How can I know the number of bad sectors on my hard drive?
This use of badblocks+fsck to mark bad blocks could be dangerous. From badblocks man page: "Important note: If the output of badblocks is going to be fed to the e2fsck or mke2fs programs, it is important that the block size is properly specified, since the block numbers which are generated are very dependent on the block size in use by the filesystem. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that users not run badblocks directly, but rather use the -c option of the e2fsck and mke2fs programs." See @john-mehorter answer.
