The thing that always sucks about hard drive problems, is it takes forever to run diagnostics.

True! Long diagnostics take ages on big drives.

I've decided my next purchase will be a 128GB SSD. Going to migrate the OS to that and keep my personal data on the HDD. No defragmenting and no long diagnostics to worry about.

Moving from a hard drive to a solid state poses problems... You might want to just reinstall. There are ways to successfully migrate, but if its such a complication, you might as well have a fresh start. That way you know everything is perfect I also heard AHCI is better for SSDs than IDE int the bios settings, but changing from IDE to AHCI will cause your system not to boot if its configured for IDE

Paragon do a good Migrate to SSD program which apparently works well. I'll give that a go first. If it turns out to be a disaster then I'll just go for a full reinstall. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
