Re: Laptop HD is failing, will external drive be fine?
07/18/15 07:37 AM


That looks like a complicated command line program or something. It wasn't click and run. Windows offered to do an imaging, so I'll guess I'll go with that. I'm wondering whether it's a problem with either partition?.....

Then I'll do as Moose suggested.


> IMHO the very first thing you should do on a disk which gives SMART errors or other random read errors is use ddrescue to back the entire thing up to another hard drive as an image file. Once you have a backup, you can start dicking around with the original disk to see if its a transient issue (caused by bad powerdown or something) or a head crash etc.
