Windows 7: Restoring a W7 backup to another HDD

Restoring a W7 backup to another HDD

My OS is W7 Home and I used Easus to back up my files to CD. Due to a sudden failure of the HDD, I did a fresh install of W7 on to another internal HDD, including all Windows Updates etc but when I tried to restore the Backed Up Files via Easus, it seemed to corrupt or mess up the OS to such an extent that I had to format the drive and reinstall Windows yet again, including all the Windows Updates, which was a bit of a pain to say the least.

Before I make the same mistake yet again, can anyone confirm there is no reason why I should not be able to restore the files (via Easus) to the newly installed W7 OS on the new HDD?
