Fresh New install of Windows 10 Pro on a brand new SanDisk Ultra II SSD 960 gb drive. Wanted some advice on the following.
Here is what I have an old Seagate Momentus 500 gb 7200 that failed after 7 years of great service. However I would like to figure out the best way to get some if not any of the data and files programs off of it. I was able to launch the HD but it would freeze after several minutes. I can see all the files on the system ( Through a Rosewill USB connected HD cradle.) but suspect a bad sector or some corrupt files.
The old Hard Drive has SAP Oracle SQL server and many other great programs on it I use for work. I do not know which would be best to recover any if I can at all from the old hard drive.
I also have a restore point and or a backup image. I am trying to determine which. I did. It was a week ago and I did it late at night when I first started experiencing problems. So I cannot remember which it was. It would be at least a week ago.
Since I now have a new SSD and a new install of Windows 10 Pro , I do not know which one I should do that might give me back the maximum amount of data returned with programs in tact if possible...?
My only other concern is if I have some kind of virus, malware or worse that caused the HD failure. Could I theoretically be copying the problem right back on to this new install? I did have McAfee but did not realize the virus may have been out of date. Now updated across my network. Wondering if everything is okay.
I am not sure if I am asking everything correctly. I hope I am. Here is what the Acronis says. (see attachment) I am sure the Windows Gurus also might have a thought or two on this as well. Please feel free to advise. Thank you.
