Thank you very much. What you say does make sense I do suppose, depending on how the drive was damaged. It was just natural wear over time, you are likely right. Anyone else have an opinion on this?
I suppose creating custom partitions around the bad sectors would work for awhile-but what I would be concerned about is the drive is already starting to go bad-and it will just continue to deteriorate over time, which increases the chances of you losing the data on the good partitions if the rest of the drive were to go bad. If it were me, I would just purchase a brand new drive and use this one for target practice, but technically, you could probably use it just partitioning out the bad parts-just make sure you back up everything you care about to another source.

Master Boot Record (MBR) / track 0
Master Boot Record (MBR):
The Master Boot Record (MBR) on x86-computers is the first sector of the hard disk. The MBR occupies exactly one sector (512 bytes). After starting the computer the BIOS automatically loads the first sector of the boot drive
