Oh boy, I'm running Clonezilla... I've run it several times, because everytime it fails with the same error: <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->ntfsclone-ng.c: NOT NTFS partition, ntfs mount error 5 Partclone fail, please check /var/log/partclone.log ! Checking the disk space... (standard_in) 1: syntax error Something went wrong!!! Press "Enter" to continue......<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> What's worse is this last time running it, the drive seems to have got worse... more bad sectors than before apparently. I don't know what to do. <!--quoteo(post=487416:date=Aug 5 2010, 06:10 PM:name=Mad Echidna)--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE (Mad Echidna @ Aug 5 2010, 06:10 PM) <a href="index.php?act=findpost&pid=487416"></a></div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->So, did you completely ignore the spinrite suggestion then? Because it's exactly what you need. The more you muck around with the disk the worse it will get. It's like hitting a screw with a hammer.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> That program isn't free. I can't even download a trial version.
