I've been a little inactive on the forum lately due to the fact I've been superbusy but I've got a question for all of you today. I went home for Christmas and my Dad turned his computer on this morning and Windows 7 gave him a notification saying the hard drive was about to fail so it would be a wise idea to backup etc..
I've backed up everything that I could think of on his computer and now I need your ideas. There is probably a small chance that the drive is alright and Windows is just warning me due to a recent event. However, can anyone give me some advice on what to do?
Usually I never have to deal with a drive that is "hanging on" so some advice would be good.
For exmaple, are there any good hard drive tools you would recommend I try that will show me the health of the drive, should I format it?
Thanks in advance guys.
Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!
