Bear with me, I am, at most, an intermediate user. My hard drive crashed Thursday night beyond recovery. Fortuntely all data older than 12 hours was backed up into image files using TI8. The drive was partitioned into 3 logical drivers (C,D, and E) with a separate TI image for each. The computer boots from C and the o/s was there. On Monday my computer will have a new drive installed with a fresh install of Win XP/SP2 -- but nothing else. The new drive will have the same 3 partition structure. I want to restore the images to the new drive, of course. Data on drives D and E should be no problem. But, will anything bad or unexpected happen if I overwrite the C drive on the new h/d with the image of the old C drive? Thanks.
