[other_os] Failing Hard Drive

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Gnome just recently started giving me a warning about my failing hard drive. It says: Code: DISK HAS MANY BAD SECTORS I just want to make sure that there is no other option other than replacing the disk. I really do not want to buy another drive for my laptop. Should I replace, or is there another option? PS. I use Arch Linux. I do not think it is an OS specific issue, and I like these forums better. That is why I posted here. If it does make a difference, it would be great if you could try to help anyway. Attached Images BadSectors.jpg (19.4 KB) (Hardware)
