If I restore this info from my secondary hard drive to my primary hard drive, will it wipe out all my new programs on the primary hard drive. There are pictures and video on it that I really want.
Data restore == yes.
Program restore == no.
In other words, you can copy your data over but you can't copy your programs over.
Does this answer your question?
With pics and videos,
Select the library on your computer, then copy or move the files from your old disk over to those libraries.
Type WIN + E
In the Address bar
(not in the search bar), type PICTURES
Hit the ENTER
Follow a similar approach for your videos, however, type VIDEOS
The WIN key is that one with the funny looking, wavy flag on it.
