    Today, my external hard drive just began getting errors so I fear for data stored on it (a music and video collection over 350GB, and no, I don't have legal/illegal Wii backups causing the errors:P ).
    I'm gonna back it up, reformat the drive and then copy it back.
    Any free backup software you would really recommend me? Please reply quick, because I think it won't take long before the drive stops working!

    This is not free but it has a fully functional 30 Day Demo and is extremely fast (1GB per min backup). Drive Snapshot is the name.

    Areca Backup is an actual backup software, but it's sounding like you only need the copy command.

    Thanks everyone, the problem seemed to be solved by just letting my computer rest for some days ^^. This topic can be closed now.
