Re: data moving software
I repeat what JCB says. Creating a ghost will save what you have now.
The files won't corrupt anymore.
Get 2 hard drives, and put the ghost on one. This data, even though maybe corrupt in places, won't corrupt any more. You can then safely copy programs once you know nothing can get any worse. Run it as a second hard drive, to pull the data up off the new drive with the old data intact.
I'm afraid I don't know of any programs that will make the process easier though. Most programs on a clean install will have to be re-installed, as they affect the registry etc, but things will just feel cleaner too that way.
