Have a Windows 7 PC which has a failing SSD as the boot drive.
It is failing and I was planning to simply create an image with Windows Backup and Restore, pop in the new SSD and use a System Repair Disk to boot into recovery and copy the image onto the new SSD.

Is there a chance that some corrupt data from the old SSD will transfer over to the new SSD if I do this?
Will this work or am I missing any steps?
