  • You can restore the data before or after you install other programs - it is your choice. In some cases, restoring before you install the other programs will allow more items to be restored to their original locations. If a file already exists in the destination, OneCare will restore it to an alternate location and you will need to move the file manually. Or, in the case of an email program, the data would need to be imported from the restore location.
