  • Question

  • I plan on doing a new install to Windows 7 Pro from Windows Vista Home Premium on my pc.  Will I be able restore from my Vista backup to Windows 7 from WHS?  Or will I have to do a manual backup on an external drive to save my old information?

  • Data is data. You'll be able to restore single files. If you use the Home Computer restore CD, however, and select a backup of the computer where Vista was the OS, you will be restoring Vista, not Windows 7.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
