OK, I'm win 7 64bit and have been for about a year. My Agility SSD died last week and is in the process of being replaced, so I lost everything.
I backup weekly to another (platter) drive in my box, my last good backup before the 1/1 crash was 12/24. On 1/1 when my box was acting flakey I started a backup and the SSD (C drive) utterly failed part way thru the backup...So I hope I did not overwrite my last good/complete backup done on 12/24 with a partial/junk backup that was part way done when my box crashed...I guess I'll have to wait and see on that....
So anyway, I should get my replacement SSD this coming week and will flash it to latest fw on the wife's pc if it's not already on the latest...Then I figure I'll move it to my box and cross my fingers for a restore working ok....
So do I choose to restore thru the Windows 7 installation process? Or do I install Win 7 and then choose system restore via Control Panel?
I found a couple tuts, but I can't seem to find one that explains restoring to a totally new drive.
Thanks in advance!
