Obviously I would loose all my data on my C drive. I'm at my last resort before new install on a new drive, so I'd like to know some things.
I have a total of four drives, System, Programs, Data, Backup.
My system drive is failing (bad sectors), I was too lazy to keep up with an up to date image backup. So I was able to retrieve a full registry backup.
Can I re-install windows on a new drive and restore my registry? What kind of problems could this bring.
The only programs that were programs/differences on the C drive are programs which I could not change the path to (google chrome) and a few utilities CCleaner Auslogics DD.
For the most part excluding a few random files, all my files should be on my data hard drive.
Acronis and clonezilla were a no go. Though right now I'm in windows making an image to my second drive getting and hopefully I won't have to reinstall and just restore image on my second drive.
Any advice would be appreciated.
