    Which "Programs"?.  Do you mean "Applications"?

    Are we talking about Mac Applications, or Windows programs here?

     

    If the "program" is in the Mac's Applications Folder, Time Machine will back it up to the Time Capsule.  The Time Capsule is hard drive.  Time Machine is software that backs up the contents of a Mac to the Time Capsule hard drive.

    Once you have the Mac copied over to the Time Capsule using Time Machine, you can restore the entire Mac back to the new hard drive.

    See #14, #15, #19

     

    If it were me, I would have the shop backup the Mac and then move that backup over to the new hard drive.  Much, much easier to let the pros do it.
