My seagate 80gb hdd is starting to fail. Getting noisy and fails the seagate
utility hdd test. I would like to replace it while it still works. How can I transfer everything from the old to the new hdd? Running XP Home .
Most hard drive manufacturers have a utility that will do that-for instance, Maxtor has MaxBlast. Depending on what brand you look at, if you are not buying the hard drive in a retail box (which usually includes that sort of software), you might want to go to the maker's web site to check for that.
