I have a new Dell computer arriving today. I am going to pop my current hard drive in the new computer but as a slave. I would clone the old drive to the new drive, but there are some programs coming on the new system that I want to keep. Can someone please explain how I can get my old hard drive data/programs etc over to the new one. I was just trying this out with a D drive I have in my old system. I backed it up and I tried to recover it to the C drive, only to be told "Cannot restore partition because the image file is on the same partion you are going to restore". I would really appreciate anyone's insight, I am sure this isnt as hard as I am making it out to be.
