Restore back up to new computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer died, I do have my LiveOne backup before it died. I am getting a new computer. Will I be able to restore my backup to my new computer after I install ALL my programs? Is there a step by step way I should do this process or is there anything I need to be careful will? Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

     

    PS. Old computer had XP, new will have VISTA will that pose a problem.

  • Sure, that will work. One thing to be aware of is restoring e-mail. If you will be using Windows Mail or Outlook, restore your e-mail files from the One Care backups to a folder on your desktop, then use the import function in your e-mail client to restore your e-mails and folders.
