Some tracks of  the current hard disk which I use are corrupt and I get a warning message, at boot time, that the hard disk is about to crash with an escape button "F2". I continue to use the system and so far(about three months), I have had no problrm.
 
My plan is to buy a new hard disk and use "GHOST" to clone the existing hard disk contents without having to reinstall everything from ground-up. Will GHOST work under the circumstances?
 
The operating environment is a Pentium 4 processor with Windows XP, Professional edition. Help please.


Software/Hardware used:
Pentium 4 processor with Windows XP, Professional edition.

HI ,

Yes normaly it will work . But I had faced some problem from using IDE HDD to SATA closne and some times the new HDD after clone, would requires a fix on the MBR .That can be done through command line of recovery console of XP or booting from a Windows 98 boot disk .

Thanks,

    if the disk is indeed bad then spinrite from grc.com might be a viable permanent fix
