Finally mounted, it says it's not compatible. Tried to run different files, none works. I wanted the manufacturer's software but it does not work so I'll use a few others.
It failed short drive self test (Seagate), passed SMART, still testing. Ariolic it passed and says ok, but it mentioned some bad blocks.

"Windows detected a hard disk problem"

As Roland mentioned, its best if you assume your hard drive is about to die. It may have no bad sectors despite that. Also do start > run > cmd > enter > sfc /scannow > enter. Also run a full virus scan.

I'd save your data right now since its now two weeks out of date.

It sounds like you are having trouble doing an image backup. Me, I never do them, but rather just include a programs folder in my data backup that includes iso images of all my programs - its no big deal to reinstall everything in my case. Once your data is backed up you need to always know the answer to this question: if I have to reinstall windows AND all my programs, how will I do it?

I did sfc scan already, that was alright. I scanned for virus, it was okay, now scanning with Malwarebytes as well.
I was just looking into other threads, Roland mentioned there that if you just replace HDD you can use your external backup to get everything on the new disk, I can set boot up in bios no prob, but I think the rest surpasses my skills. Still looking around to see how to do it.
My data is backed up but system isn't. It would be really cool if I could just transfer all onto a new disk.

If you get a new drive it will likely come with software making cloning a piece of cake. Just did it myself on this one. You will need a free sata port and spare sata cable for the transfer. Once you're off spinning disks and onto SSD you'll probably never have another bad drive.

I'll have to go to a pro to replace hdd first. I know about some things so I might sound like I know something but about a lot of things I know nothing.

There's also another problem. I have dual boot (ubuntu) on, but I dont want it on the next disk or to reduce the Windows partitions size. Don't know yet how it works. I emailed the official service for Asus here, will see if they have the same hdd model and also maybe they can clone it for me.

I will consider this thread resolved since you all gave me sufficient information to act on, if I ask something else it is not really on topic because it's questions about cloning systems so I better continue there. Appreciate all responses.
