Been working on access application for work in runtime.

Packaged, tested -found errors - fixed - repeat all day Saturday on and off.

Saturday 4.00 pm Windows 10 refuses to respond to menu clicks or anything not in desktop...

Fair enough domestic computer I didn't plan on using it like this when I bought it. Hard restarted ran ref cleaner, chkdsk and defrag OK for few days.

Load visual studio 2015 and download resharpen yesterday ...stops responding on video sound as I am studying asp.net. Machine is responding so tell it to reboot and BSOD.

Can't get into any files except dos

In dos can see c drive files...moved some critical to usb and one drive for now.

I have a new machine for development delivered to work yesterday...I am thinking I can connect the two on network and copy old c:/drive to folder on new drive.. This isn't something I am very good at.

How would I go about doing this?

FWIW:  Moving files...a large number of files or large files...via network is slow.  The simpler approach would be to just remove the hard from System 1...connect it as a secondary drive to System 2...and copy or move desired data files.  Program files will have to be reinstalled, you cannot simply move those and expect them to work properly.


Why would you want to copy the Windows partition?  In any case, the best that I can envision for Windows and program files...would be to just clone the files to another drive/partition.  Windows and the programs won't run in another system...unless it has exactly the same physical componeents installed as the system from which the hard drive was removed.


If the hard drive is the problem...nothing but frustration should be expected.  So my first step would be to try to rule out the hard drive as a problem...by assesseing ifs functional status via a hard drive diagnostic.

FYI - it's actually faster (in most cases) to slave the old hard drive to the new system (using USB 3 stuff) and then copy the data over that way (most data is contained in the Users folder).
