on a win 7 computer, the hard drive was failing based on messages in windows and SMART tests.
I cloned the hard drive's data to a new hard drive.
the new drive worked fine for a couple weeks, now when coming out of sleep, we get a message that the hard drive is failing. But smart tests say it's ok.
could a file have been corrupted from the failing hard drive then the corrupted file is copied over to the new drive and the system things that corruption is a failed drive rather than a bad file?
