It's the hard drive. I have it in a totally different PC now running diagnostics. It was stuck on the same sector for 2 hours until I hit escape. At this point I'm hoping this program will at least make it to where the data will copy over to a new drive quickly. Then who knows, maybe I will put on goggles and take a hammer to it. I'd like to drop a wrecking ball on it and then move the ball and look at it.
