Yesterday, when my brother turned on his computer it started making a clacking noise, so he called me into his room. I've never heard a HD going bad but from what I've read, this was what it was supposed to sound like, so I had him shut down. Since his computer has two hard drives, I needed to find out which one was making the noise. I disconnected the slave drive (just contains media files) and then turned on the computer again. Sure enough, as soon as I did, it started making the same noises again. Obviously that meant the hard drive containing the OS was going bad. So right now, I'm trying to figure out a way to copy the contents of the primary drive to a new HD. Both the primary and secondary drive on his computer are almost full, with only a few gigs to spare on each of them. Since his computer is almost 6 years old, his motherboard only supports two hard drives being installed. I originally thought I could just move his hard drive to mine, hook it up as a slave, and copy the contents of it over to one of my hard drives. I then could take it out, pop in a new hard drive, and copy the contents back on to it. From what I've read though, it isn't as easy as that. So my question is, can True Image help me copy the contents of the primary drive that is going bad onto a new hard drive? Also, the installation of XP on his system has three user accounts, all password-protected. Will that pose a problem? Thanks in advance.
