Running Windows XP Home - File NTFS.
Error checked hard drive and it moved 4 files because of bad segments.
Is it time to think of replacing the hard drive or is it ok for a time yet?

if you make regular backups there should be no problem when it gets really bad change it or take advantage of any special offers.

I make regular back ups.

How big & old is the drive and Make and Model? You can often go to the manufacturers website and download a program which will test the drive and sometimes even repair faulty sectors. Hitachi & Seagate both do one for example.

Drive is 3 to 4 years old - 80 Gb. The PC it's on is not here so I cannot check make. Thanks for your suggestion. I will see what the manufacturer's website says.
