Restore Limitations

I have an old amilo laptop that i backup regularly. it takes some time to move all my files to the backup as its a usb 2.0 machine

i have purchased a new laptop and as such want to simply restore the backup of my files to this machine, inc all inet explorer setting/favourites etc. is this possible?

thanks

If transfering from Win XP, download the update WET from here:
Download details: Windows Easy Transfer for transferring from Windows XP (32 bit) to Windows 7

Warning do not use the old Win XP Easy Transfer, will not work with Vista or Windowds 7.

it will be going from windows 7 ultimate 32 bit to windows 7 pro 32 bit, so no real o/s issues, so guessing should be fine?
