Dell Dimension 8300 HD apparently defective. Dell On-Site tech now installing new HD, and new Windows XP. I could do so, but was covered under warramnty. I have a full back-up of my "crashed" C:\ HD on an external HD using TI 9.0, just in case this happened. Do I do a full restore, including the Windows OS? Or, is there a way to restore all "old" HD files but keeping the new Windows XP OS, now installed on new HD, intact? I am afraid if I do full restore, I will certainly wipe the "old" Windows over the "new" Windows, and therefore propagate any errors or corrupt files that may exist from my "old" Windows XP to my new HD. Is it simple procedure to do complete restore with TI 9.0? Any tips? A bit afraid to do this as I don't want to lose my back-up data captured with TI 9.0. Do program files actually restore using TI 9.0, without need to reload every single program? I will never be able to determine what separate files and folders to manually restore...that is why I am hopeful full restore will work, and the reason I bought TI9.0 in the first place. Any advice or tricks, I should try to ensure successfull restore, or pitfalls that I should be aware of, or is this a complete restore process an easy and safe procedure? Thanks for any response.
