Hard disc failure imminent

PC hardware help | AfterDawn Discussion Forums - forums.afterdawn.com
Hey guys,

I got a message last night saying "Hard disc drive failure is imminent, back up all your stuff etc"

First, is it a foregone conclusion or should I run Chkdsk, antivirus and such? I have a 1 TB external HD but don't know what to use to do the backup, I can't just drag n drop 86 GB of family photos and my C drive says it has 560 GB in use, I only have 469 GB free on my external. If it will fail for sure, I don't need to back up the entire PC, just the pics and documents (under 100 GB)

Please advise

Thanks
