Drive Read Errors

I have a drive that has always been troublesome. My first indication was 
that the gmirror would end up degraded and restoring it would be 
extremely time consuming. (Excuse the terminology, it has been a while 
since I did that part.) I gave up on the drive and removed it from the 
mirror permanently.

I recently used smartmontools long test and discovered that the drive 
had read errors.

In your experience, is there any value in trying to use drive by mapping 
bad sectors or partitioning around the errors?
