Hard drive issue ?
My second in command workhorse pc had been very reliable over the years … its around 5 years old
Recently it it started with occasional blue screen of death alerts and now it just cycles through the start-up procedure getting as far as displaying the desktop for a few seconds then closing down and restarting ..repeat … repeat … rep
I suspect maybe a faulty hard drive !??
The hard drive has plenty of free space remaining.
Ill go through what I intend to do. Please advise if this can be done and if it’s the correct way to do it. Or, if there’s a better solution
Am I overly simplifying the procedure or will it be as straight forward as ...
1/ Remove the hard drive from PC insert into a hard drive caddy and retrieve images, music and folders/files relating to my Adobe and Cubase projects. Backup everything retrieved to an external hard drive.
2/ Install brand new hard drive into PC.
3/ Re install windows from the back up disc I created when the PC was new.
