Hi, I want to move from my Desktop to a Laptop because I need the space my PC occupys. The problem of course is moving all my files, programs and preferences from one to the other. I have a Disk cloning device. Is it possible to clone my PC hard drive (there is only one) using the Laptop hard drive. If so would that mean that my Laptop then becomes my old PC in every respect?

 

Both PC's are running Windows 7 home edtion.

 

Thanks

Cloned drives will only work on the exact same hardware. No, that won't work.
