I have the following problem: I made a back up of my old Laptop (Windows 7) and want to install that back-up on my new laptop (Windows 10). I made that back-up on a DVD. However, I do not want to reboot my harddrive, I want to keep all my current data and just want to add the back-up of my old Laptop to my new one. Is that possible?
The DVD has the following folders: "BOOT", "PREBOOT", "TVTOS" and a file called "BOOTMGR". Maybe that helps.
"Will that approach in the article add my back-up to my new laptop or will it overwrite everything?"
From the article in my link:-
"You’ll be asked if you should restore the files to the “original location.” Should you? If your new PC’s drive letters and user folders correspond exactly to the old one, yes. Otherwise, pick another location."
In your case, pick another location, as Fruit Bat /\0/\ has suggested.
