My hard drive has 4 bad sectors and I am worried that it is going to fail completely some time soon. It was making a terrible noise until I ran checkdisk and found the four bad sectors. Now it no longer makes the terrible noise but I worry it will still fail soon anyway. What I want to know is will Acronis True Image 8.0 let me copy one hard drive to another then remove my old drive and just use my new one. I intend to add a second hard drive internally to do this. Then remove my old one and run off my new drive. I have a compaq Presario 6000 machine. P4 windows xp xp2. If compaq had given me a windows disk with my computer I would just install a hard drive and rebuilt my system but alas all I have is cab files on my soon to be dead hard drive If your program will not do this then do you know of any that will. Thank you your time and attention.
