Transfering Programs from external HDD back

  mbp 15:38 21 Aug 2006

Before I re-formated my HDD, I transferred files and programs to an external HDD. Now my re-formatted HDD is operating nicely. How do I transfer my other programs back from my external Hard Drive to my computer, and will it be activated? Please provide details to a Know-nothing!

Simplest way is to re-install the programs as dragging and dropping them will move them but the pathways will need re-doing as the original registry info for the programs will have been lost in the formatting.

Would Copy/Paste work? If Registry is lost does it mean that I may have to get a new activation Key if I have not kept the old one?

What you ransferred and how you transferred it is important. Let us know.
