I have a 2009 iMac and I am about to replace the hard drive (Apple recall). I have a lot of programs and utilities installed including original windows 7, office 2010 etc. I am currently using OSX 10.8.2 and I have already performed a full Back Up. I would be interested in finding out if I have to re-install everything in the new hard drive or will this be done through the Restore procedure from my back up? I know that I can restore files, I'm just not sure what happens with the software! I would appreciate some help!
