    So once I get the new HDD can I just clone the the image from the old HDD even with bad sectors? I had just done a fresh install 3 months ago and would imagine to be faster then installing Windows 7, upgrading to 8 then upgrading to 8.1, installing all drivers, software and restore the backup.

    You'll be fine. I suggest that while your HD is still in working condition, move all personal data to an external hard disk then make a backup image containing your Windows partitions only. Once you get a new disk then just restore the Windows Image back to the new disk then run commands such as chkdsk+sfc+dism to ensure everything is in clean working order.

    Free Macrium backup/Restore is good.

    There's step by step tutorial videos from youtube showing how to backup/restore.

    Thanks for all the responses. I would love to put an SSD in my wifes computer, however my wife would not want to spend the money. So $50 HDD it is.

    Also thanks for the the input on doing a restore. I will make a restore image.
