    I have a hard drive that is dying on me. Its still working but on boot up, bios returns with a bad disk on start up. Able to resume and run windows as usual with minimal issues ( slow load times, slow saves etc) I bought a new HD and backed up the dying old one. My question is what would you suggest I do. Im not sure if I should just use the dying disk as a back up? Or perhaps raid the 2. Or perhaps another possibility.

    If a harddrive is dying or dead its not much good for anything anymore.All you can do is junk it.
