    Hard Drive Failure in iMac. It hasn't failed yet, so what are my options?

    Is it a 1 TB Segate drive? Apple recalled these and replace them for free

    If a novice, it's not at all an easy a job and you do need specialised tools (suction cups) - I'd get someone to do it for you.

    First, you can verify the health of your hard drive somewhat by opening up Disk Utility, select your drive and then hit Verify Disc.

    Looks like a 2009 era iMac.

    No thunderbolt, so going external won't really work.

    Replacement hard drive - typically $100
