How to clone boot drive with read errors?
I can boot up ok. But the boot drive makes clicking sound sometimes and makes the computer slower, especially when waking up from a sleep.
I tried using Acronis to clone the drive. It crashed as soon as the drive makes the first clicking sound and nothing is cloned.
Since I can boot from the drive, if I use windows explorer to copy all the good files including the hidden files to a new drive, is there a way to then "sys" the new drive like in windows XP to make it bootable into windows 7? All I need is a way to create or copy the boot sector, right?
