My C drive on my Win XP machine has recently become unstable.
It's working now as I type but next reboot is anybody's guess.
I have gotten the BSOD several times recently and did a windows check disk to no avail. My question is: How do I know if I should just reformat and re-install windows or replace the drive? Is there a utility that will test the physical drive and is reliable? I would really prefer to go the path of least resistance since my data is backed up. The way I have it setup now is to clone or make an image of the drive on my external drive. If I make an image do I have to re-install everything?

Thanks in advance.

**Sorry for the double post...don't know what I did.
