Transfer of settings to new PC.

  Linkslade 19:03 30 Jan 2016


I am running Windows7 on an ancient desktop PC and have purchased a new desktop PC running Windows10.

I had previously backed up my settings on W7 using EaseUS Todo to an external drive. To save myself a lot of work could I transfer this back up on the external drive over to the PC running W10.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks for your reply Kestrel but there is no mention of Windows 10 in the link.I suspect there maybe a different Situation in respect of 10.

Yes. You can transfer the backup image to the new PC. You just need to reinstall Easeus todo backup on Win 10 so that you can restore the files.

Thanks Bailifei I'll give it a try.

Restore files and folders from a File/Folder backup, not a full Image Restore from an Image/Partition backup

Image Backups can be Mounted (Explored) with the Easeus program, or by simply double-clicking the .pbd Image file on the external drive

Thanks for that Robin.

I will be restoring the file/folder backup and not a full image restore. I just wasn't sure whether or not it could be done.
