Got to love quick thaws

Came home to a wet basement took drywall off and removed insulation found breeze block wall wet, Checked window wells they were bone dry. Im suspecting ground still frozen but Crazy Ontario Canadian weather went to 11Degree C back to freezing weather by next week. Im attaching pictures for review and looking for suggestions, but get the feeling the 40foot deck might have to come down and contractor to dig down to foundation. But will really like to do the work inside and save the deck.

Were dampness starts is below window well base

Sorry.... I haven't found a 100% positive way of waterproofing from the inside.
Typically waterproofing involves the outside of the foundation and moving rain water
away from the house.
