    How to transfer programs/files/etc. from old hard drive to new hard drive? Does anyone know how? The old hard drive had a virus, so I took it to a computer place and they took it out and put a new one in. =\

    This is a good slave tutorial for hard disks.

    I would be very cautious about recovering files from an infected source though.  Make sure that you scan the drive thoroughly.

      Let us know if it works for you, or if you require another solution.

      I do hope you get it sorted though.
