That's what it looks like. Running chkdsk takes so long I had to
cancel it, and running the disk check from Windows also takes forever.
I already have the new drive, so all I need to do is get the data onto
that drive, but cloning won't work with the software I've tried. I'm
thinking to try a system backup, and then restore to the new drive,
but I don't know if that will work either.
Just doing a fresh Windows install on the new drive isn't such a big
deal on the laptop - there's very little software to reinstall. I just
have no idea where the Windows software key might be.
The reason I didn't consider a failing drive, and kept fighting this
is that there are no other signs of it. No crashes, no errors in
normal use, nothing at all.
