Am I pipe dreaming? I purchased Acronis True image 8 a while back and haven't had a chance to use it till now. My situation is this. I have a workstation with Win2k that has bad sectors, everything seems to be working normally at this point, but I am planning to install a new drive and reload the OS & software. I considered attempting a clone, but I have serious doubts it will work. I really dread messing with having to set up the whole system again. I was hoping to find out if anyone has done this successfully, knowing a hard drive had bad sectors. Currently, there are 122 bad sectors and one pending (From SMART) As you may know as more sectors fail, the machine can experience hiccups which it has.. My primary reason for doing this now is the pediatric software update failed on this machine a week ago and thats how I suspected and discovered the drive had bad sectors. Otherwise everything works normally. I did run ScanDisk at boot as well. So, am I out of my mind for even considering this? Am I asking for more trouble?
