    Prior to my mobo failing. I backed up my main drive using Ghost to a second HDD

    Now that the mobo is about to be replaced and a full reinstall is going to be done on the main drive can I then transfer my games from the disconnected back up drive to my main C drive?

    I did a clone of drive c then removed the second HDD prior to the mobo getting replaced. If the games can be copied back across how would I do that? It would save me updating them all with the patches etc.

    If it cant be done... :eek:

    You may have to install the games on the 'new' setup first, and then copy the old installs back over the new ones. But if any of the 'patches' load new files into windows or win32, you won't have them so the install won't be complete and will probably fail.
