Psst, so is anyone home? It almost doesn't look like home, it's been so long. Well, I've managed to get myself into trouble. I pulled a hard drive from a Core 2 Dou and put it into a (Sandy Bridge) Core i5 computer, swapped out Win7 product keys (I think), upgraded to Windows 10 Pro, tried to change user name and related registry settings, and Windows 10 then wiped out all of the user's data . So I have a few options: 1. Cut losses and move on. 2. revert/restore back to Windows 7 (using an available HDD) 3. try to recover files from previous folder/file versions option (I now know where to go, just not sure how to extract the "shadow" copy) 4. make full raw copy of HDD (prior to reverting back to Windows 7) -a) what's a good means to make full raw copy of HDD commercial or open/free options? DriveImage XML, Acronis, etc. I learned the Ghost 15 doesn't/didn't work well with EFI/UEFI based systems, which is what I'm working with.
