I've been running into problems for the past month trying to do a ghost backup of my C drive, with ShadowProtect (on WIN 7). It runs for a few hours, then fails, telling me there's a read error. So I looked on SP's site and it recommends running CHKDSK in this situation. So I ran CHKDSK on the C drive, with "Automatically fix file system errors" checked, then tried another SP backup. Same problem...ran fine for a few hours then aborted. So I ran another CHKDSK, with the abovementioned option checked, plus "Scan for & attempt recovery of bad sectors". It ran overnight, and in the morning it was stuck at 25% of step four. I let it run all day while I was at work, then when I got home it hadn't budged.
Does it sound like my C drive could be warning me that it's about to crap out? I'm wondering if I should replace it.
