I had a HD going bad on one of my systems. I have the ability to hook the drive to a usb connection. I have a new HD ordered. My question is what is the best way to clone my old HD so I can put the data onto the new one. I do not have a restore disk. any help would be appreciated.
Please provide some more information on the entire situation.
1) Desktop or laptop?
2) Operating System?
3) Do you have an authorization code for the OS? (it will be on the side of a desktop, or underneath the laptop).
4) Do you have access to another computer to which you can connect this defective hard disk as an external hard disk and then run CHKDSK /F ?
We can help you if we have sufficient information, if not we are flying blind!
