Ok my power was "flickering" the other day and well ever scince my computer keeps making me run system repair and well it always finds the same problem; disk errors. and well when evver it does its 1-2 hour thing my pc comes out working fine. only REAL dammage i see is a loss of a few frames in my games with my GTX260 i probly cant fix that. but the real issue is how do i fix my hardrive up so it dosent do system repair annymore?
Good idea to clone the drive, but to save you time finding out how to clone and the best software to use, i would just copy/backup your important data onto another HDD or DVD as soon as possible. Then once you have your data backed up, then worry about cloning the drive.
