522 hard drive going, going ...

My turn. :) It's 2.5 or 3.5 years old or so, getting much worse freezing/pausing/system crashes only when I'm trying to watch recorded programs or use any kind of DVR feature. Live TV is fine, anything else? Forget it.

Anyone ever have any success having a drive recovery place try to recover the drive? I.e., create a clone, install the clone, life goes on as before?

I have 85 hrs recorded on this thing I really don't want to lose. No service Dish provides for something like this? (I know, but I have to ask ...)

There is working procedure:
- run from CD or floppy MHDD.EXE, use Scan with Remap On
- find same type of disk, model ID must be absolutely same or take any from APPROVED list ( check Yahoo group Dishmod )
- using GHOST with parameter -ir do full ( sector-by-sector ) clone.
