You can try to clone it using EaseUS Todo or other software, but the key point is that if it is failing, you should not use it other than to back it up. I would first back up all key data files to a CD or DVD or pile of them and then worry about the whole drive image.

You just need to pick some software to clone and then test it out. I would choose from EaseUS Todo Backup, Ghost 15, or Acronis True Image. Each has good documentation, and all three work well in my experience.
