Copy Programme To Another HD?

  Legslip 12:59 31 Aug 2010

My pals HD is giving up the ghost and he has some industry specific software on it but he has lost the programme disk. Is it possible to copy the prog. from the original HD to a new one?

Generally no, the program is buried with the OS together with registry entries and dll's and so forth. You can't really get back to the original program.

I have seen/read (I think :)) of some progs that calim to do just that... whether they would work....

If the HDD is still OK and usable you can clone the whole disk partition/s using something like Acronis... then just pop the "new" disk in the PC as if nothing had happened.
