    i've recently installed my hard drive from my old computer (Dell XP) to my new computer (HP Win7)-- which is now my "F" drive. Finally being able to see my "My Documents" folder, there are programs i'm trying to utilize but wont run (eg, Blackberry Desktop Mgr not recognizing my bb). Is it because the program was initially installed on the XP computer in the "C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\Blackberry" folder and that's where its looking for its necessary files? Will I have to install the program again on my HP OS?

    Thanks in advance...

    Yes, you will need to reinstall your software again, but you should be able to import your saved/backed up data from your old installation from your F: drive

    so, how should i handle my itunes music? should i direct itunes and my verizon media manager to the "F" drive for my music? this all becomes kind of involved -- in a way.

    thanks in advance,
