High, long time windows user, new to the forum. I'm hopping to catch some windows gurus for this. So, my girlfriends HDD bit the bullet a week ago and corrupted the disk formating. Windows reads it as an empty disk ready to format. That being said, I was able to recover the entire drive with a program called Recuva, so I have everything back. here is my Issue. I'm putting all the files on a new drive with a fresh copy of windows on it. Is there a way to move the directory files and registries over so I don't have to dig up every installation disk for every program she had. Essentially I want to make a clone of the HDD on the new one. I know this is usually easier done from having a disk image, but that I am lacking. Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.
