Can you get to your files ? I would back the files up . Purchase a new hard drive and reinstall Windows. Do you have the OEM Recovery discs?

Id follow this tutorial

When I was doing a backup. I had 4 disk so far for the backup. When I put the 5th cd and start the backup again. It tells me incomplete and want me to try again. I hit try and it started from the begining. I stop it. Why is it doing that?
