What does it mean if you have a Bad Block in your NAND backup?

    Just curious here. I bought a used Wii and it was already hardmodded. I softmodded the Wii then. Now when I backup the NAND to my SD card, It shows like 4-5 bad blocks but seperated from each other. What does this mean? Is there a way to fix it? Will it worsen? I softmodded my Wii successfully using ModMii.

    the bad blocks probably came with the wii from the factory. i think that a wii nand can have up to 80 or so bad blocks when leaving the factory.

    Thanks for the quick reply. All of them were factory bad blocks :) . What if they were not from the factory? Just curious
