Windows 7: Questions about Image backup and "Bad Clusters" & restore over network

Questions about Image backup and "Bad Clusters" & restore over network

1. I've been getting warnings that my hard drive is failing, and other diagnostics have reported there could be "bad clusters." I have an online backup of all my files, but I want to try an image restore. I following the Win 7 instructions for creating a backup. At the end of the process, the completion bar showed RED with the message that "bad clusters" were detected and those weren't included in the backup. Will the image restore still work?

2. I have baked up my image to a hard drive (my laptop!) on a network. After I used my System Repair disk, will it give me the network option to access the image?

I don't like Windows Backup and Restore. I prefer Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download It has a boot disk where you can get into your PC if it should fail and restore the image. It is very easy.
