Issues after reinstalling windows RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have recently reinstalled windows 7, before I did it I made a backup and did the old copy and paste backup also. I have windows up and running again and ran the backup, but non of the old programs that was installed is back. How do I get them back, is there a way to just reinstall everything from the backups I made or do I have to reinstall all the programs one by one from their discs?

  • What kind of backups did you make? Usually, backups would include data files, not programs. You will have to install programs one by one.

    Also, note that this forum is NOT for technical questions on software, but for discussions of Forums Issues. A moderator may move your thread to a more appropriate location, though.
