Moving to new computer- using windows backup?
I recently built my own awesome desktop computer (woohoo!) and I need to get all my files (both user files and installed programs) over to it from my old computer. I want to do this as easily as possible, but I'm not sure if my idea will work.
Could I make a backup file using windows backup on my old computer, move it to the new computer, and then restore from that backup? The OS is the exact same on both computers (Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit).
Would this work?
