Generally Bad Sectors show signs of a failing hard drive this can be done physically or Software errors but yeah I recommend backing up all your stuff before it fails for good.

If you just copy data from the failing HDD to a new one, then it won't transfer the bad sectors.

I do not recommend cloning the OS from the failing HDD however - an installation on a failing HDD is generally unstable and unsuitable for cloning.

Hope this helps.
