Error that drive about to fail
A backup failed with error message that Ghost
"Cannot create recovery points...The type of errors encountered indicate that this hard disk drive is about to fail. It is recommended that this drive be replaced soon. To ignore this error and backup this drive, select "Ignore bad sectors during copy" from the advanced options in the Drive Backup Wizard."
Being very cautious about such things, I immediately removed the (8-year old!) drive from service and ordered a replacement drive. I'm just curious (since I've never seen such a message before): are such messages by chance known to be unreliable? (Even if so I'll probably heed it!)
