This is on my dad's computer and he lives 500 miles away so I don't have physical access. Kind of makes it a pain in the ass. He's getting SMART warnings and stuff is starting to run unreliably. I got him to buy an external hard drive thinking that we could just clone everything off using CCC then swap the drive out, but it wouldn't complete the clone. So I had him copy the users directory onto the external hard drive for safety but I'm a bit stuck as to what to do next. Probably the best thing I can think of is to have him buy another hard drive and do a fresh install on it. Probably not a bad thing to have an extra hard drive around. So the question is, are there any obvious alternatives that I'm missing? Better way to deal with this? Thanks in advance.
