Registry and Programs

  Jam3 17:53 15 Oct 2006

if you partion a drive and have the operating system on the C drive and all your games and programs on the D drive, what do you do if you have to reinstall your operating system and you are left with all your games and programs that will not work any more. How do you get the programs to start?

You will have to reinstall them as they will have lost their registry enteries.

Best bet is to make a back up of your C drive using Acronis True Image and restore the image rather than reinstall

I was worried you were going to say that. So much for partioning, it's not worth the hassle. Unless of course you use Acronis or the like. Anyway thanks for your time.
