Windows says my C drive is going bad

#1MrWeStSidePosted 4/10/2014 6:55:41 AM
Hello all, was wondering if there are any good programs to test it? Woke up to the bios screen this morning but it still lets me log on. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Your drive has failed a SMART test.
It's probably going to die soon, you should back up everything and replace it immediately.

Damn, ya I do remember it saying that when I saw that screen. Thanks. Might as well buy that SSD I have been holding off on. Hope it holds out at least a few days till I get the new one.

If it doesn't make it, you can try freezing it to get a few extra minutes of life.

I'd back up data immediately all the same. The drive could last for months, and it could last for minutes. I wouldn't wait a couple days if you have any other option.

Ignore this guy, hes trolling.
You should back up your data immediately and be prepared for the drive to fail.
