1. I think the hard drive is failing on my mbp, how would I check this? I am getting a TON of errors when i try to repair permissions, and files that i cant open, and sometimes when I launch programs they just bounce in the dock and never open. 2. Is their a program out there that will let me copy files to my external while ignoring the failed files? I am having to copy them one at a time cause of all the corrupted files. Thanks!!
