My HDD is failing (So says CrystalDiskInfo 4.5) and I have been recommended to create a image using Macrium or something similar.
Right now I have a Seagate Momentus ST9320423AS 320GB.
My 320GB is partitioned into
I was planning on:
H:drive where my entire data is
However, if that doesn't solve the problem I will have to buy a new one and I was planning on something like 1TB. This 1TB will obviously not be partitioned like the 320GB and may or may not have the same drive letters as the 320GB. So in this case, will the restoration of data be possible using the image?
H:drive also contains a lot of programs installed in it and I'm pretty sure a lot of them would stop working once
C:drive is restored to factory state. In that case, what do I do? Will they appear in the control panel? Also, will restoration be possible if the new HDD's drive size is larger than the size of the imaged drive? Like 1TB can have a drive of size 300GB while
H:drive is only 132GB
