I don't tinker on my PC hardware often. But the replacement HDD arrived, and I had to. I kept the bad HDD and moved it to /dev/sdb for recovering the data that is not in bad sectors. No important data was damaged, and the up side is, that I run now Ubuntu 20.04 instead of 18.04.
Oh, and yes, the protection foil was on that PC for 2 years now, so I finally took it off now. Very satisfying 🙂
