    Ok. My original 2006 500GB HD still works, but has failed the "funnel seek test" when assessed by Seatools (Seagate system diagnostic tool) and can not do a complete backup in Windows or any other program. I fear a crash every time I turn it on.

    Got a new Seagate 1TB HD to replace the old one after cloning, but no dice once again.
    I have the HP Vista recovery disks in a drawer. I'm thinking of re-installing the OS on the old HD, thinking then, the complete clone may work. Wondering how I would go about doing a complete backup of the HD in case things don't go as planned.

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!
