    The disk is dying. Replace ASAP.
    Buy a SSD.

    That's why I have always backed this up with Acronis. I agree 12 years is a very long time.

    And I would replace this with a new Solid State hard drive.

    But wouldn't it still be sluggish with 8 gb? Intel Core (TM)2 Quad CPU 2.4 GHz 2.39 GHZ
    When did you last Acronis the machine? You could be just restoring the fault(s) - or the developing fault(s) - by restoring an image of the previous sytem that was corrupted (or at least, "tainted/polluted") as a result of the drive failure. Too many possibilities ...recommend clean install.


    I'm managing/running a collection of old i3 machines with Windows 10 on SSD and 4GB RAM. Serves my purposes and usage requirements. 8GB should wing it. You can but try, anyway. If it doesn't work out, you're no worse off.

    I did an incremental Acronis last Saturday.

    I can't see putting a new Solid State hard drive on a Intel 2 quad core processor that is 12 yrs. old.
    The Dell rep online wasn't sure if the SDD would even fit. He asked for me to get the service tag# off the desktop so he could verify if it could.

    Wouldn't the data that I recover be able to be read on the new Solid State hard drive?

    Dell said they could migrate the data for $39 (minimum) but Acronis would be FREE

    An image can be restored or users folders can be backed up and restored.

    I would go to Crucial's website and run their scanner to see what compatible SSDs (if any) would work on your system.

    Crucial US | DRAM, Solid State Drive (SSD) & Memory Upgrades

    It downloads a small executable that you run on your system.

    I've used it several times before making purchases.

    so if when I am recovering my entire hard drive using Acronis to transfer the contents to a new solid state hard drive, how can an image be restored? Or do you mean that using Acronis is in effect restoring the hard drive contents to another hard drive such as a new Solid State one?

    You can restore a disk image to any drive.

    So you could either clone to the new drive, or restore a previous disk image to the new drive.

    Your choice.
