Does HDD and operating system have any automatic function to allocate and separate defective sectors from the HDD and prevent these sectors from being used?

Unfortunately not, usually I have to erase the disk to get it to do that

the files are saved in bad sectors of my HDD? not automatic reallocated separated sectors?

when you have increased count of write/read errors in your disk, then you have also increased relocated sectors. Such events have primary effect for speed of your disk (decreases) and safety of your data. This disk is ready for a replacement.

If I burned DVD discs from files that were on this HDD then will I have to discard the discs because they are corrupted? If HDD has bad block, sectors, defective reallocated sectors count then this dvd disc is corrupted?

If an HDD has bad blocks and bad sectors, will the files I download be saved in these bad sectors?

If an HDD has bad blocks and bad sectors, will the files I download be saved in these bad sectors?

i have a lot of disks so that i can move files around when i need to clean a disk up

hard disks are usually robust but occasionally they need some maintenance

If an HDD has bad blocks and bad sectors, will the files I download be saved in these bad sectors?
