But there can be sudden death without any warning with a chance of the
same order of magnitude. Sure if you have lots of money relative to the
value of the data it's a good idea to change the drive. For hobbiests
it may make more sense to squeeze some more life out of the drive.

Drives typcially won't reallocate bad sectors if they can't get a good read
or the operation is a write. This is to give you a chance to recover the data
if you want to try. And if you want to spend some effort, you can figure out
what files, if any, were using these blocks.
