Is there an easy (or proven) way to basically move a HD to a new computer, keeping everything intact?
Existing computer is getting a little long in the tooth, but of course user doesn't have all disks, etc., to reinstall.
In win7 is there a type of bare metal restore I can run?
I've also heard Acronis has an option to restore a backup to a new computer?
Both are Dells, old one an optiplex 3010 & new one an optiplex 3050, both running 64bit Win7.
Suggestions?
