comment Hard drive misbehaving, SMART and manufacturer diagnostics pass. Should I replace it?
Report from a SMART study at Google conducted on predicting drive failures notes "Given the lack of occurrence of predictive SMART signals on a large fraction of failed drives, it is unlikely that an accurate predictive failure model can be built based on these signals alone." static.googleusercontent.com/external_content/untrusted_dlcp/…

comment OS X borked; need to backup outside of Time Machine
agreed that with super duper and a failing drive, it's not clear that data you get isn't corrupt. i'd open up your pictures to make sure they are actually there. given the failing drive, i would copy it with something more robust to bad sectors. superuser.com/questions/90799/… is a good start. finally, the more you mess with the drive, the more damage you may cause. if the data is really important, call drive savers.
