WIN98 registery and file transfers to new HD
Posted on 2002-05-08
I have developed bad sectors on my HD.
So I have bought a new HD, and want to install a
new OS on it. However I want to be able to access
whatever old programs and files that have not been corrupted that are on the old computer. Specifically I have an accounting program and Microsoft Outlook Express, with all my old e-mail.
Can I simply copy my registery over to the new computer, without having any errors when running Windows? Does it have to be the same version of Windows?
What files do I need to copy from Outlook Express to have all my old e-mails?
