This may be the test of your backup system.
The only good news is that hard disks have never been cheaper.
I had a Hard Drive with WinXP (NTFS) and it worked perfectly... now that I try to boot it starts OK, the WinXP logo stays on the screen longer than it uses to stay... after a while the HD starts making a weird sound, like if it was trying to read a sector and it can?t and tries one time after another... it stays like that so I have to turn it off.
I connected this HD as a slave on another new HD, the OS knew that it had a slave HD, but when I tried to access it the computer freezes(sp?) so I have to restart, I tried running scandisk to check for errors but I also freezes. Also, Partition Magic can?t make a backup partition because it also freezes.
What can I do?
Any help will be really appreciated!
