Question coming from total ignorance, with apologies.
Of my two HDDs the c: drive started cycling during bootup and running Chkdsk. It was taken away, both drives ghosted, D: formatted and partitioned and contents of both drives put back into partitions.
Result is worse problems on bootup than ever before, growing every day.
Bootup cycles without fail, Chkdsk runs and takes longer. Today's error message contained something to do with problems regarding 'restore'.
So the question is, is it an accepted thing that ghosting a failing HDD's contents will also ghost its technical problems?
