How to find out which files are linked to bad sectors? Repair with chk

A surface test of my hard disk with some partition tools showed one or more bad sectors.

How can I find out exactly which of my files allocated space these bad sectors in the past?
....and which are now corrupted?

I have heard that a "chkdsk" run could repair/exclude these bad sectors logically.

Some disk test do show or run checkdisk that may tell you in the event log. Main thing is to back up your data the disk remaps bad blocks to start with only when thats full do you see the errors so its in bad way and new disk needed
