Failing Hard Drive - Acronis can't read from sectors - What happens if I ignore all?
I did plenty of searching before deciding to start a new topic on this but I couldn't find a straight answer.
I have never made an image on this machine before and it is now giving me smart errors. I installed ATI home and tried running a full backup but it kept throwing errors saying it can't read sectors.
I ran chkdsk c: /r and it completed successfully but I continue to run into the same issue trying to make a full backup.
I'm currently running a full backup and ignoring all errors but I'm not really sure what that means.
Will a restore of that image work on the new drive?
Will the new drive also have corrupt sectors after the restore?
Would doing a clone offline make anything better?
Will resizing the partition help things?
Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
