If this is important data, don't risk it! Go buy another external
drive (and save some coin by getting a generic enclosure and OEM
disk from Newegg).

Then after moving the data to the new drive, decide what you want to do.


You may want to consider getting a same size drive and setting it up as a mirror of the original using software RAID.

At least that way, you can continue using the old disk until it really drops dead and at the same time keep all the data safe and up to date.
