Secondary drive is failing... D Volume

Hi, we have Veeam backing up the C solid state drive but not the D SATA drive.  The D drive contains a heavy amount of Autocad data and Program Files for software installations.  What do you recommend using for quickly getting the D up and running again with a new drive replacement and retaining all the NTFS permissions.  We have some Paragon tools and I'm ok with command line too.  Just want your input on the most efficient way towards resolution without having to redo the entire the OS install...  Just throw everything back on D and have programs running off of it.

I think you need to take a full image backup...if its a workstation then AOMEI Backupper should work great

you can take out the D drive, clone it  on another larger HD on another computer, place new HD into pc and run the machine.

I have Rescue Kit Free Edition 14 and Backup and Recovery 16.  I want to get in the habit of using them more often if they are good but is Drive Copy more ideal for this situation?  PS- Rescue Kit took forever to recover data from a failing drive last time I used it but I guess it all depends more how bad the drive is failing then the software.

My suggestion is either Paragon Drive Copy or  AOMEI Backupper as John mentioned above.
