Disk repair message Help!
I have been having trouble lately with very slow IMac running snow leopard 10.6.6.
Went to disk utility, disk repair following the "troubleshooting tips" from this forum.
In red, this is what I find
Disk description WDC WD 1600JS-40NGB2 Media
Total Capacity 160.04 GB
S.M.A.R.T. status- FAILING
This drive has a hardware problem that can't be repaired. Back up as much as possible
and replace the disk. See Apple dealer.
I have been running Time Capsule with my computer, so I am thinking I already have back up ? ( fingers crossed) What disk needs replacing, can I do it myself? Any help much appreciated.
