I recently had my hard drive tested and was told my hard drive had "bad sectors" and that it "would boot, but only work for a few days. A week at most". Now I am looking to buy a new hard drive and clone the old one to the new one. Would the cloning be effected by the "bad sectors"? I really don't wanna lose my Windows, my computer came with it from the seller and I don't have a Windows cd. :??:

This really doesn't answer my question. I'v already heard of this software and was thinking of using it also. Thanks, however, for suggesting it, and trying to help

If you can still use the PC then when you do the cloning it will not clone the "bad section". But if the OS files are in those section you maybe have problem go through the cloning. And If you can done the cloning then you will be fine.
