It explains to me it will be back to the beginning of computer, and that all files created after I bought it will be lost.
I have choice:

- to save files (recommanded it said)
- to restaure without saving files.

It doesn't give alarm.

Are there files that you have not been able to get with the bootable USB that you know are still there that you want? 

I feel like you've already saved all that is savable from the machine.  If that is so, I would just let it restore.

Yes I took everything I wanted, including in AppData and other "hidden" folders.
Ok, I do a direct restauration.

Now that's a bit of guesswork: does it mean saving the files (in some backup folder, for further use) or to restore them where they are supposed to be?

However I agree with Sir Knight: as you have a backup of everything you could squeeze out of the old disk, a clean re-installation would look way better to me too.

See if it offers you the option to scan the disk for errors first. We are not sure that the hard disk is really compromised, perhaps it was just a severe software glitch, thus knowing that the HD is OK would be some relief...

Sit down and relax: if the test finds no errors it's the best invested half-an-hour of your life :smile:

Did it tell you which sectors were unreadable?  It is normal for the time to go up as the scan continues.

I know, it takes a lot of patience. Apparently there's really something amiss with that disk, and at any dubious read attempt the software keeps trying to read that sector over and over for a number of times before declaring it faulty, which takes plenty of time.

The positive side is that once a sector is marked wrong it won't ever be used, so your new system will reside on the healthy part of the HD.
The less encouraging side is that we can never be sure that the problem won't expand in the future: once the disk hardware begins going nuts it will hardly stop.

How large is your HD? I still have a healthy unused 1TB. If only we could think of a way... after all Christmas is near enough, right? :winks:

Yes, it talks for the moment of 4 sectors: 192508-509-510-511.
It's now checking 192572 on 635648. That difference explains the estimation growing I guess.

My HD on computer is 750 GO, but only 715 GO when I bought, rest was used by the system and stuff installed with it.
The day where it stopped to work, it stayed free around 550Go.

I have to check a destocking in a shop with furnitures and electronics. They stop to the end of the next week. I don't know if I'll find something for a cheap price.

Those sector numbers are high enough so the drive may be usable if the sectors are marked unavailable as Chiron suggested. 

I do agree with him that this is not encouraging for its long term use.

You were about 30% done in an hour if I'm reading your post correctly.
