New PC w/Windows 7with 2 user accounts and backed up data from XP-easiest way to transfer over
Posted on 2010-11-22
I will try to keep this as short as I can but I really need help with data transfer. I have been building and selling a lot of Windows 7 custom built PC's. My customers have XP PC's and mostly have multiple users and multiple Outlook Express email accounts. I have a portable hard drive and also I am using the first version of click free back up. I just ordered the newer version and maybe that will help me with a lot of my problems. Here are my problems and Experts, I would like you to be like you where in my position for these answers. I am getting users data and emails in other users accounts when using click free back up. I was thinking using click free would be faster than the old way of a portable hard drive. Is there something else out there that works better that will back up accounts and restore them into the correct accounts?
1. How to back up data for each user account and restore it to that users account on the new Win 7 PC?
2. With new PC I am using Windows Mail Live. Old PC's Mostly using Outlook Express. How would you back up there emails, folders and contacts and import/export them to each users email account?
I have been having to spend way to much time after I have the PC built on the data transfer portion. Please show me what you do or would do in my position?
