the hard drive for my dell laptop recently began making a weird noise. Upon contacting Dell, Dell determined that my hard drive was the source of the problem. Dell proceeded to mail me a new hard drive.
I tried using Windows Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to move the files. I ran the wizard, then I moved the files onto dvd's. I then installed the new hard drive and moved the files from the dvd's onto the new hard drive. When I went to the Wizard to restore the files, and when I clicked on the directory that I had placed all of the files, a window pops up saying:
"The location that you specified does not contain stored information. Please type a valid folder path into the edit box.
If you entered a path to a folder on a removable disk, the disk must be in the drive. I tried searching for some assistance and saw that imaging software called ATI was suggested in some cases. Should I get this? Can I move the backup files or the image to a dvd, move them to the new drive, and restore the backups or image? Thank you very much!
