What kind of files ??
Data files should be accessible .. Program files will be useless .. As long as the files have not been written over.
Not sure about the files you listed .. But they should be readable if they are still on the HDD

You should be able to connect the old HDD to the new computer and read any files in it.
This may take a HDD <> USB adapter .. if it can't be installed internally.
Something like one of These adapters

You can also "Image" the non working HDD to a data file in an external HDD ... (Formatted NTFS)
Then read the Image from the new computer.

Either of the two methods above should work if the files are still intact.

Is the old HDD the same type as in your new computer ..
Can you install the old HDD in the new computer as a second HDD ??
It should be able to read the files on the old HDD
