Windows 7: Moving Windows from broken hard drive

On the Partition Wizard i see a folder (and not a lot else) in OS called BackUpFilesToKeep. Does this mean my backups are likely safe?

Did you create the folder? I've not seen one like that, but it should...should be ok. If you have access to another computer you could take your bad drive and attach it to it and copy your backups to something else.

I didn't create it. It's full of 320 mb files named backup. Might just have to change hdd and be done with it. Does it have to be the same hdd or will any 2.5 Sata work?

Yes, any SATA HDD will work.
