Hi, I have a Medion laptop with 4g ram and 500g hdd.(32bit) They have also included a CD with a facility to upgrade to a 64bit system. If I choose to do this I have been warned to back up all my files and settings. My question is:- I have a full back up of the 32bit on Acronis TI. If I go ahead and install the 64bit option will the Acronis back up install OK on the new 64 bit system?
When I installed W7 64bit a lot of the progs I use would not install even with compatibility mode. I then did a 32bit install and got them all working. If you have older progs you might have to go back to 32bit.
I have recently installed Windows 7 64 Bit, have had no trouble with programs printers,bar a very old canon,cameras etc etc. Runs very smoothly,I think better than the 32 Bit version. But I do have the extra RAM.
