I am rather concerned that my HD could be on it's
way out.

The following happens:
1. System Resources drops from anything from 83%
to 60 - 65% after only a short time.
2. After four hours work it even dropped to 45%.
When I re-started I heard funny noises at the
start. These disappeared after a while. The
performance increased again after I re-started
but dropped again.
3. I have removed quite a few Programs and there
was some improvement, but not enough.

I really would not like to lose all the information that I have on my HD.

Any advice, please?

Thank you.
