Not necessarily. My understanding is that on some computers you cannot restore a backup image to a new local hard drive unless it is essentially identical to the old drive it is replacing. Four years ago, the hard drive on my previous Dell XP desktop failed but because it was still covered by an extended warranty,a Dell technician visited my home and replaced it free of charge with essentially the same unit, and I was able to restore all my programs and files with the help of my techie friend from the image backup I had created using Paragon Drive Backup just before the old drive died forever. I asked the Dell technician whether I would have been able to restore my programs from the image backup if I had installed a different SADA hard drive instead of the Dell unit he had installed, and he replied that this would probably not have been possible.

Yes, cloning or using an image from the old drive will restore everything.

Not everyone is technically comfortable enough to replace a hard drive. I
suspect that is probably true of the majority of list members. Besides,
it's not just a matter of replacing the drive. You also have to reinstall
Windows or clone/image from the old drive.

I'd try replacing the HDD on my own. Every tech could do it easily. If
it is a computer from the last 7 years then you can simply go with a
SATA hard drive.
Let us know what capacity you need and we'll try to find a good deal.
I believe contacting Dell should not be a good idea because your
computer is less likely in warranty, and Dell may either refuse and/or
over charge you for such replacement.

Re: Urgent help needed: failing hard drive

Unless you have an extended warranty from Dell, they won't give you the time of day, and it will be up to you to decide whether to replace your failing hard drive on your own. Instead of replacing the bad hard drive, you might want to consider acquiring a refurbished computer from the Texas-based Computers for the Blind organization which makes refurbished Windows 7 desktops and laptops available to blind individuals upon request for the nominal fee of $110 or $140, respectively. Because these computers come with JAWS 17 demo and NVDA already installed, as well as a bunch of other blind-friendly programs like Windows Live Mail and Jarte word processor, getting up and running again will be much easier than buying a new computer and installing everything from scratch.

These days any worthwhile imaging or cloning software can copy locked files while still booted into Windows using the Volume Shadow service. Although it is true that to restore the image you will have to boot into something like WinPE.

i would do the following.
lets say if i have a 1tb internal drive which is failing.
i will get a 1tb new internal drive.
the drive should be of the same size as your original drive you can
get a larger new drive but the partition will only count 1tb and the
remaining space will be unalocated space which you must give to
respective partitions.
then using external drive i will boot in win7pe or win10pe.
then i will use a clone software and clone my primary failing drive to
my new drive.
once that is done i will remove my primary drive which is installed to
sata port 0 and connect my new drive to sata port 0 and test boot.
i would advise not to image or cloan your drive when you are inside
windows as some files that are in use may not image or cloan properly
and i have had failed restores when doing that

Hi Sylvia,

Although you might require a technician to replace the drive, hard
drives are not specific to the model/manufacturer of the machine so
finding a replacement should not be a problem. As to whether you
should just purchase a new machine instead of replacing the drive,
that is your decision. However, if you wind up having to pay a
technician, the total price of the drive and paying the technician
might wind up being enough that purchasing a new machine might be an
option worth considering. If you can have someone replace it for free
or very little, replacing the drive will usually be less expensive.

Hi list, I'm in need of some urgent help. My particular issue is with
my C drive and this only started this morning. I've been getting a
message which states that windows has detected a problem with my main
drive. hdd health also reports that the health of the drive is at 4
per cent. I'd like some advice on a few things.

Do I need to think about replacing my hd or should I consider getting
an entirely new system? This machine is a dell xps 8100 so I don't
even know if I can find a replacement drive for this machine.

I have more questions I would like to ask but I'll wait for initial
suggestions before I ask anything else.
Thanks,
Sylvia.

Hi Sylvia,

It is hard to say how much free space you will need. It is dependant on
how much data is on the drive you are trying to image. Active@ Disk
Image Lite should warn you if the drive where you are saving the image
does not have enough free space. If errors are found which are serious
enough to prevent the image from being created, Active@ Disk Image Lite
should warn you in this case as well.

Hi Carlos, I have a couple more questions about system images. When
using active at disk image lite, how much space should I have
available for a system image? If the program finds errors on the
drive, will this affect the image in any way?

Hi Sylvia,
 
It is hard to say how much free space you will need.  It is dependant on how much data is on the drive you are trying to image.  Active@ Disk Image Lite should warn you if the drive where you are saving the image does not have enough free space.  If errors are found which are serious enough to prevent the image from being created, Active@ Disk Image Lite should warn you in this case as well.

Re: tasks scheduler, default tasks, and windows 10

Edmond <gocloud84@...>
 

As you might know, you should use the Settings app in Windows 10 to control Windows Defender in Windows 10. I am sure you are aware, but let's remind that you cannot disable, or enable automatic scanning in Windows 10's Windows Defender settings (I mean actually the Settings app) like you do in Windows 7. Fortuantely it's still possible to disable or enable the real time protection there if required.

included defrag and a check disk function, such were always handled by
other programs in the past. You really don't need to perform such tasks
routinely with modern systems unless you are concerned about whether you
use a laptop computer in a wreckless manner or whether an acciden has
occurred. But in the case of desktops. I wouldn't worry.

I wanted to check out tasks as I wanted to check over what I had and
didn't have. I'm having trouble trying to figure out what tasks I do
have.... One part tells me that I have no active tasks and no tasks
have recently been run. The control panel for scheduled tasks was a
lot easier to understand with earlier versions of windows. I can't
make heads or tails of this one. I just wanted to make sure that I
have windows defender to scan, defrag, and check disk. Wouldn't those
already be set up?
Any tips or resources to read would be appreciated.

Re: FS Cast on new jaws features for jaws18

Edmond <gocloud84@...>
 

I do not see any impressive features.
It was also possibleto use Windows+Volume key combination to launch JAWS if you set the option!
Totally mess for a new version, and 1 SMA count.

A question on Filling Forms in Word Docs

This is a pretty basic question, but I have a form here in a .docx file. The Questions have a series of underscores after it.
Like
Today's date _____
Do I get rid of the underscores or put the answer after them?
