Re: If I had to replace an SSD, would I have to re-install all the programs on the HDD?
Thank-you Philip, that makes sense. In your first scenario -> if I restore Image1 to C: (the image that only contains Windows and no other programs), how would I remove programs on the HDD if I don't have any other backup? Do I manually delete the program files and folders in the HDD via Windows Explorer? Or is there a formal way to uninstall each program? Would these programs appear in the Control Panel of the new SSD?
