I am using a computer with dual-boot capability, but I cannot access Windows. Instead, I booted Ubuntu and discovered that my hard disk is on the verge of failing, and some of the partitions are now read-only.

Can reinstalling Windows 10 help resolve the drive issues and keep it functional for another six months?

Also, what is the most effective way to back up data from a hard disk that is failing and can only be read-only?
