Beofre I start I want to say a huge thank you to @Gellyneck for alerting me to this bit of FREE software in the thread http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum...nstall-help-please.100257/page-3#post-1266194 The software is called Macrium Reflect and you can find it with a bit of Googling. Today my PC wouldn't start. I hit it in vulnerable places and eventually it did spark into life. Subsequent re-starts gave the dread disk read error warning. The hard drive was on the way out I feared. I went to local computer shop and bought a new hard disk which using Reflect I cloned from my original C drive while it was having a good day. It all went perfectly. Reflect has other ways of restoring a dead hard drive but I found the cloning option was the simplest. Did I mention it was FREE? The alternative would have been a time-consuming fresh install but I only did that a few weeks ago - probably should have taken the hint something was on the way out. I can recommend this program.
