LC i am in the process trying to find the writeup on failing HDD's and how to retrieve data...that you helped me with at PCHF.. Got it somewhere.....
I am assuming the retrieving data part,it was not suppose to be a long term thing just long enough to get your data off a damaged/failing HDD.....I ran that on my Dell 4600. It ran for three days then it stopped and the computer never worked again. I went back to my Packard-Bell that still works.
A bit late to the party...opening a program, Running programs, browsing the interweb the longer the computer runs the more it happens and longer it takes to recover.
