  1. I have a hard drive that I suspect is going bad, it would be nice if Drive Bender would allow me to make the drive used for duplicates of files stored on another drive only. That way if the drive did fail, I know I wouldn't lose any data and I would be fine until I swapped in a new drive. You could use this anytime you suspect a drive is going bad, maybe the drive is starting to make some noise, the drive is really old, etc...

It found a bunch of index problems and orphaned files. I ran the western digital Data Lifeguard tool, and it won't pass the simple test. I am currently trying to copy all the files off and onto a new drive. My question is, after I copy all the files off of this drive (
