Pc backup

I have backed up my pc using the Microsoft backup utility under Windows XP.
Can this backup be used to restore on to another pc ( which I may buy in future) under Windows VISTA op system?

Your refering just to personal data, pictures, documents etc.
The easiest way to save stuff like that is on a flash drive, just right click the items (or complete folders) and select "send to" and choose the drive. Are you using CD's DVD's ? messy !
It's so easy with a flash drive to put all that (or any part thereof) back onto a new system.
