to clarify, I sent the computer to Asus to have a new motherboard. The information on the hard drive was transferred to an external hard drive by a local company as requested by Asus repair. Now that the computer is back with a new motherboard and an empty hard drive. ....this is where the ? arises. Can I plug in the external and copy all the info to the Asus with the new motherboard, or do I need to take other steps first, like run the recovery disk that came with the computer. Clarification would help before I attach and find out that I should have done something other than plus in and copy. thank you. Judy

I don't think there will be any problem. You should be able to transfer from external HDD to Internal HDD without creating backup. Recovery disk is something you need incase of OS failure etc.
