Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Laptop's cold boot noise is back, maybe originating from hdd. What can I do now to backup my Windows 10 system in a that way that it could be transferred bootable to a new ssd if recent hdd fails to play anymore before I get new ssd.

 

Is something what I already have usable after crash:
- external hdd drive
- Easeus Todo Backup home 10.6 Pro
- usb 4 GB, 8 GB, 32 GB
- dvd drive and empty cd's
- Easeus system backup in external hdd drive
- Easeus WinPE Emergency boot usb

 

Second question: If I do clean Windows 10 install to ssd, can I use my recent Easeus system backup? Or what I need?

If you already have a system backup.  Then provided your DON'T create any new files on dying drive, then you can restore this image to the new SSD (if it fails... you still have the mechanical HDD source)

 

What you NEED is to have a bootable recovery USB stick created from EaseUS backup or a CD/DVD (depending on what they offer you) - EaseUS WinPE Emergency boot usb

So that you can COLD boot this and then point it to your D:\Backup10\System Backup (hopefully this is actually on an external USB drive)

 

There is no need to install a copy of Windows 10 on the SSD before you do the restore process.

Yes, you can.

Just Install Easeus and restore your backup.

It isn't but I've transferred copy of latest system backup to external hdd and also all critical files.

 

Cold boot noise isn't anymore cool. I'm not sure it's hdd but I hope it's because it's easier to fix. If it's fan, I have to screw my laptop to atoms. I think the resonance during bad noise is more on the hdd side than fan side.

Q - How do I back up Hard Disk before crash?

A - (Expert Advice)  First use a backup software to back up your Hard Disk to any other disk. Then take out your hard disk and throw to the wall with lots of force. Now you have a back up of your hard disk before it crashed. :win:

It's good to have hard drive backup but my hard drive is okay!

 

Vibration center locates near the vents and fan.

I was Aomei Backupper user but then last two integrity checks failed so I changed to Easeus.

I have found the one mentioned above to be best here. You can clone whole drive partition - including the OS data, if you want in it.
