Look, the experts here can't help you if you are posting random one line posts all over the place. And it makes you look irrational. Describe your problem in detail calmly and maybe someone will help you.

Hi johnson_123 :)

It'll depend of what system files are located on a bad sector, there won't be any generic message for that. It'll be different depending on which file cannot be accessed by the system. Also, it won't tell you that the file is on a bad sector, it'll either hang saying that a system file is missing, damaged or corrupted, it'll throw a BSOD, etc. There's no way to know that for sure.

Most the time you wont even notice, you will only notice if they are boot critical files.

FWIW:  If you have any files of any type on bad sectors...you can use the chkdsk /r command to attempt to move/repair said files to a section of the partition that does not reflect bad sectors.  Success in attempting to do such...is not guaranteed and may require more than one attempt.
