I can run it as long as I need for now, but a quick calculation of the rate its going (~50 sectors/files/clusters? idk what the unit is) per second, about 37 million more to go, It seems it should complete in about 8.7 days. I'll leave it till tomorrow night to see if the rate improved. The ETA is hovering around 1 hour and 40 mins, but the seconds don't count down.
    Thanks for the progress report. That seems like an awful long time....

    Yeah I agree. Its a 2tb drive partitioned into the windows partition and another storage partition (C and D respectively).

    If I get 2 new drives to replace it, would it be possible to copy each partitions' contents and still have a bootable drive in C?
    Or should I just get a 2tb replacement and do a low level copy of the entire disk?

    Which ever you prefer, I would think getting a new WD Black 2TB would be a really nice choice. Their fast and reliable hard drives. I've used a program like Ubuntu installed on a Flash drive to recover and move files off a failing hard drive before with good success.

    I'm thinking of getting separate drives so I can maintain them separately. However, I'm unsure if merely copying partition(as opposed to the entire disk with partition tables etc) contents would be enough to maintain the bootability of the C drive.
