Bad Blocks

Dave and Friends,

Drive Genius has found 20 "bad or suspect" blocks on the external drive that I use for my SuperDuper! clone. SD has never complained so I assume the bad blocks aren't involved with any data corruption. I'm not sure what to do next.

Should I use Drive Genius to spare the bad blocks? Do I wait until SuperDuper "hits" a bad block one day and then repair or get a new drive? Or should I just get a new drive now?

Thanks for any and all advice.
