Restore Windows 7 from *barely* readable drive
My old hard drive gave out, but in a manner that allows me to copy files off of it still for about 10 minutes at a time. I'm not sure what is wrong with it, but I can't repair it. I would like to recreate the Windows environment (installed programs, customized settings, etc.). I have copied just about all of the files off of the drive, but my question now is: How do I recreate it? I have created a fresh install of Windows 7 on a spare hard drive, but wanted to see if it is as simple as just copying all the files over to the new drive ( I don't think so)?
Thanks for any and all advice!
