Sounds like your HD is getting ready to take a dump all over your data. Back up while you can.

Use Acronis Migrate. It is the best and easiest to use and its free for 15 days while you only need it for one so.

You can copy your entire HDD to a new one. OS and all. It perfectly copies or clones (whatever you want to call it) the entire HDD to a new one.

This is the best software I have ever used for this purpose. I know I sound like a spokesman for them, of course I'm not. I just used this and it is super easy.

All you have to do is hook them up on the same pc and away you go.

I second the vote for the acronis trial software.

It's the first one I've used that made transfering to another HD completely painless.
