I have a friend that purchased a new Dell Inspiron Laptop with Windows 7 installed. For the past several years he has been backing up his old Windows 7 machine with a full backup. He now wants me to do a restore from the backup to his new computer.
I don't think he can do this as I thinik the restore would also try to install system components from the older machine,
Can he use the backup to "just" install all of his backed up documents, pictures, music, and videos.
I do know that there is a transfer cable that you can get to move everything from one computer to another. I have used such cables with limited success.
Please let me know of any experiences that you have had. It is certainly appreciated.
