So far.......:) Thanks for that, I'll pass it on.
Were you around that area circa 1970 when an Australian band called Tully played there ?

No, circa 1970 I lived in South Australia.

I do believe I have heard the name though.

Yes, famous in its day.

The ' time remaining ' is increasing- up to 8hrs 45m now. My new drive has arrived and- considering your prognosis of the damaged one being cleaned- should I simply take it out and hit it with a lump hammer ? I wouldn't trust it now anyway.

The only problem that I see there with the old hard drive is just the one reallocated sector. You may get years of trouble-free use out of that hard drive if you wish to continue using it ... but like you said, don't trust it! The same can be said for any hard drive, including your new one.

Disconnect the old hard drive from the system. Then connect the new hard drive and install XP.

The old hard drive can be connected to the system later, and using the XP system, partitioned and formatted and it will then be ready for use again.

Good luck.

Thanks, Alien and James,

I'll be back in a few days to enquire about using PM as a clone tool for the old drive alongside the new one ?

Thanks again, great assistance, great site. Recommended.
