Any suggestions for efficiently transfering all programs and date files from a failing windows 2000 based hd to a new windows 2000 hd? Do I need special software, is there any shareware or free ware that can do this?
I am still greatly confused by the error I am getting on one partition of the old hard drive ntoskrnl.exe is missing or corrupt
I cannot get into the rc because the owner of the machine does not know his password
Thanks
Lewis

basically the only way i have found to do this and do a clean job is to use a uninstaller. Yes i know you think i am crazy but let me go on in the installer tell it to dump the files to a single file that will take everything and dump it as a single file. then on the other computer open that file using the uninstaller and install it from there.

You talking about a third party unintstaller or the uninstall that comes with software?
I tried copying folders from program files but that does not work at all
I tried that with Earthlink just copied the folder over and nothing works in it further there was no setup file there to install it on the new drive.

Ghost would do it lovely BUT its probably going to copy all the corruption & files may still be missing :cry:

No idea about this way SecureITGroup is suggesting. Personally I prefer to just reinstall everything and start afresh.
