I found this forum doing a search. I am quite clueless when it comes to this aspect of the computer! Any help would be appreciated.
I have been getting a SMART failure msg saying to replace my HD immediately, failure is imminent. Have been getting it a while though, so far hanging in but I know my time is coming.
I want to replace it myself, and copy my HD if possible. The least expensive way. If I buy a new HD, can I install it and leave the old one in and transfer the files that way? If so how?
Another ? is about my OS. Tranferring files that way will or won't transfer my OS? I am thinking not. I only have the recovery disk to my OS since it came downloaded when purchased. Will this be enough?
Thanks for any help and your time!
