Building an OS and Application crash protected PC


Jun 9, 2009
Hi, I am now on my 4 th hard drive that has crashed (in less then 2 years). I am getting very tired of reinstalling the OS and all the applications. Is it possible to backup the OS and Applications in case the hard drive fails – I can just copy the data to the new hard drive and continue without having to reinstall everything again.

I use my PC for PVR, work, gaming . . . . so performance is important just as the applications.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Thank you,
