Hi there - first time poster so please be kind....
I'm getting a message similar to this at start up:
"SMART Failure predicted on hard diskback up your data a failure is imminent."
Gave it to one of our techy guys at work who has looked at it, and tried to rescue the data on the HDD which it (almost) did apart from the final 10%. But when he tried installing the brand new HDD that I'd bought it wouldn't let him complete the task. He thinks its a power issue that has caused the HDD to be damaged and that is also preventing him from installing the new HDD. Anyone out there have similar problems? Is it dead or is there one last (economically viable) hope? Any help apprieciated. Thanks.
