RAID-1 or ZFS with copies=2 on a laptop will save you from many situations of
data loss or corruption.
I have my clients give me SATA disks that have bad sectors and are therefore
unsuitable for use in servers. I make them BTRFS RAID-1 and they work fine for
me as backup disks. Most such disks only ever have about 50 bad sectors and
RAID-1 covers that nicely.
