XP backup; Vista restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently my motherboard on an XP got fried, but the internal hard drive was fine. I did have an updated OneCare backup. I am getting a Vista Home Basic computer. What is the best way to restore files on the new computer?

  • When you get the new PC, remove whatever security software ships with it and install OneCare, activating it with you subscription LiveID. Then open OneCare and follow the wizard to restore files from another PC.
