Hey guys, I'm having a issue with a HP Elite computer, its now saying on startup that the hard drive is going to fail and must be replaced. It still works great after boot up. Is there a program that i can use to make a exact copy of the original onto another then just replace the hard drive.

I have read that a program XXCopy may be able to do this for me.

Thanks for any help.

Acronis True Image is the best of breed, but it's not free. A good free alternative is Macrium Reflect.

^ Yes, I was also going to post Macrium Reflect. However, the reason I posted True Image is because True Image will only image the used space, whereas Macrium will image the whole drive, used and free space. So in case the OP uses a smaller drive, it will be fine... as long as the new drive is larger than the drive he wants to image. Also, it's free for 30 days :)
