PS CS6 How to drag a layer into another PSD file at-size?

I have a file A that had been previously cropped  with DELETE CROPPED PIXELS UNCHECKED
When i drag a layer from file A (where the layer "appears" correctly sized),
the resulting layer in file B has the original pre-cropped size (i.e., the cropped pixels "reappear")

how can i set a mode for DRAG LAYER  (or otherwise achieve) to be the cropped-size (=  IMAGE SIZE )  from file A
and not have it "restore" the cropped off pixels on the edges?
i'd rather not re crop all the "A" files with DELETE CROPPED PIXELS.

Perhaps the easiest method would be to make a temporary duplicate of file A and do a hard crop eliminating outside pixels. Then use THAT copy to drag to file B.

there are unfortunately lots of files involved.
i have just found that  select-all  +  image>crop   does the trick

I didn't suggest this because in my own work experience, I always save when I am not supposed to, overwriting my origional. Of course it only happens in the instances where I didn't save a backup.

Thank you for the points but please, next time that you post a question and a satisfactory solution does not come up, select your own comment as answering the question and have your points restored back to you.

Same goes if you find the answer on your own. Simply post the solution that you found and select it as the answer.

I own you one.
