I just wanted to make sure if I can migrate windows 10 from an HDD that has 80 health and 17 bad sectors to a new HDD or SSD without any problems during or after migration. Regardless of what software I use on migration. Thanks

I assume since you know about the bad sectors the drive does too. when the drive detects a bad sector it essentially throws up crime scene tapes and prevents any further saving to that location. a spare sector is called from the warehouse to replace the cordoned off sector. 17 bad sectors is about the time to stop using the drive for critical workloads (OS).

there should be no issue cloning the drive the sectors marked as bad will be ignored.
