So recently, using Ghost 10 and a Maxtor external HD, I restored my Firefox Profile after an extension update removed all my saved passwords. That was quite simple, however, I do have a hypothetical question. Say lightening wiped out my PC and I had to replace the HD or the whole computer. I do have a complete backup on my external HD. If I copied that to another HD, would software applications, be it security like anti-malware to utilities like CCleaner function, or must everything be reinstalled via setup.exe files? Thank You!
