Excellent! Now, I would suggest that you put your old hard drive into a static bag, label it with the date it was retired, and put it in storage. In this way, you have one additional possibility of recovering your data, just in case all other methods fail. You may never need it, and it may not even work later on, but you will be glad you saved it if you ever need it.
