Windows 7: Looking for a strategy..

as per instructions, I tried the sfc route...no luck. But really, I'm not expecting you kind folks to solve the problems I listed but rather suggest strategies that would keep all of this from happening in the first place. Backups seem to be the most popular answer. I'm not holding my breath that someone will develop self-healing software.

The only self-healing software I ever heard of was Microsoft's Windows' NTFS self-healing function which I turned on via Ultimate Windows Tweaker 2. Does anybody know how does this NTFS self-healing work?

Did your check disk fix any bad sectors? I would definitely back up all the folders and files in case the drive fails. Sometimes you just need to reinstall with a clean install, then do an image, then put files and programs back. But the checks suggested earlier in this thread might get things fixed, or give you a diagnosis.

My hard drive is failing and after one clone with errors, I decided to reinstall on a new drive, rather than fix.
