OFF TOPIC:upgrading to Vista and needing a little advice RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm about to upgrade to Vista (Home Premium) and I was wondering if I can take my current backup (created in XP Pro on an external drive) and then restore it back on my computer once  Vista is installed on the formatted drive?

  • Are you referring to a OnecCare backup? If so, yes. Install OneCare on Vista and then use the restore from another computer function to restore your files. Note that locations will be very different under Vista, so you will likely need to move many of them to their "final" locations.
