I had this new clone shop assembled computer for 15 months. My C partition has windows 7 32 bit home premiums for just under one year. I make frequent true image backups and do "experiment" with windows 7 and at times after mucking up my system I will restore the most recent image. (I make a daily backup of my Thuderbird folder to a separate partition with a batch file). The backups and images are on a second hard disk. A few days ago when I tried to restore a one week old image I got a MFT error. In the end I did succeed after formatting the partition. DOES THIS MEAN MY HARD DISK IS BECOMING FLAKY? If it is the case I would replace with another 320 gig western digital blue as the cost is reasonable and I do not want waste more time with a flaky disk. I am a health professional who enjoys tinkering with windows and helping family and friends with the knowledge thus acquired.
