SSD Died and I Need Some Help Restoring Backup Image

My SSD died and I want to know if any issue I would have restoring the backup image to a mechanical drive and then back again when the replacement drive comes. Thanks

If the drive is dead, how are you going to get the image off of it?

Assuming you already have an image backed up, as long as you're aware of alignment, imaging to a HDD for now and back to the new SSD shouldn't be a problem... I always prefer to do fresh installs, but many do imaging without an issue...

You should have no problem imaging it to a hard drive, and using Paragon Migrate will take care of putting it back on the new ssd and align it in the orocess.

I think I will just do a clean install when the new drive comes. I do not have to much installed on the raided HD so it will only take a hour to reinstall everything.
