Windows 7: Corsair GTX SSD "204 - Bad Block Full Flag"

Corsair GTX SSD "204 - Bad Block Full Flag"

Ran a SMART report for my Model: Corsair Neutron GTX SSD... Got a 204 - Bad Block Full Flag.

Is there anyway to repair this bad block? Or move it towards the end and mark it as something to not use or something? Or am I stuck buying a new SSD drive? What causes bad blocks in an SSD drive? I never defragged it to my knowledge. Any program I've ever used to analyze defrag, advised against using for ssd ... plus my build is fairly new so I have no need for anything like that either.

So I've read a bunch of different articles and threads on SSD's and seems like not a lot of folks know the technology... And I still have some questions...

It is common for SSD's to have one or two bad blocks within the first month of operation, is that correct?? And I should really only be worried if that number increases, yes??

Does windows know not to write to those blocks?? Or is it necessary to have ssd software related to my specific drive (ssd controller?) running??
