Yikes..that means that either your main disk and data are corrupted, or hopefully, only the target disk for your backup.

I'm assuming you can run your computer, right?

then, it's most likely a surface or system header corruption on the area that you are backing up to>

a little more information on your setup will be most helpful?

Optiplex gx620 starts up but won't go into windows just comes up to start in safe mode but if I select in safe mode it comes back to safe mode. Looked in setup and see an alert "out of range"...


These issues are usually caused by the bad capacitors on the motherboard as Computerscot stated. Here is a repair guide that shows how to check your board for the bad capacitors and what to do if you find them.

This sounds like Malware. You should attempt to scan with an Online Scan provider.

Master hard disk s,m,a.r.t.status bad,backup and replace


A failure message from the SMART system of this nature indicates that a catastrophic hard drive failure could be imminent. Without delay, back up ANY data you want to keep. This error isn't going to go away, and is being reported by the drive controller.

Whilever you can access the drive, move any data you want onto another media (such as DVD or external USB hard drive) because chances are it's not going to work much longer. You need to look at buying a new hard drive as soon as you possibly can, and migrating the data to it.

Files and Settings Transfer Wizard will be able to backup your data to another media.
