Hard Disk Problems - HD Sentinel

Anyone ever use a program called Hard Disk Sentinel to diagnose or monitor HD issues? Windows keeps throwing up a popup window saying that it has detected hard disk problems and that I should back everything up then call the manufacturer.

Its an ASUS laptop - Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

I installed and ran the HD Sentinel program and the attached screenshot is what it gave me...not really sure how to interpret that.

Ok - as I typed this HD Sentinel threw up a popup that said "Failure Predicted"

I have everything backed up as of yesterday....time to get a new HD?

Smart messages are very useful but not necessarily the be all end all.

Are errors being logged for the volume in event logs?

Thanks for the tip...Acronis also says disk failure is predicted.

I picked up a WD Black 750 GB HD, now to figure out how to use the backup and system image I did yesterday to fix this...

I've never done this, I've only re installed windows from a boot disc. Any advice?

You really have a lot of options.

WD has a free version, http://support.wdc.com/product/downl...l.asp?swid=119.


I have heard good things about http://www.xxclone.com/, never used it though.

You can also mirror the bad Drive to a new one, depending on the OS you are using. The down side to disk mirroring is some other backup software does not like "Dynamic disks". But using DD is the easiest. I just remember that there is a bug in Windows 7, Sometimes mirroring drives that are different can fail with an "Extents are not the same".

So if you are running Win 7 try a different method.

I'm so confused...

Yesterday I used the Windows Backup and backed everything up to an external hard drive. I thought I put an image on it....this was my understanding of the process

Turn off laptop
Remove old HD
Install new HD
Plug in external USB HD
Turn on laptop
Boot from external USB HD

Is that not right?

It sounds good. Did you make the USB drive bootable?
