Default My biggest fear - Buying a new PC.

Hey there guys.
Was wondering for the last 2 years of doing my Stealth business, What will happen once my PC will pass away..

I have 20 Stealth accounts, Each one of them has its own Windows account, Cookies... Using NetStick (Cellular modem) to switch IP..

Each time i make a new account, I dont sell anything untill ive built the cookies history for at least 21 days.

Now the day had come, My PC is showing signs of dying.

Since my knowledge in computers hardware is pretty much basic,
Is it possible to keep somehow all my info/Cookies/windows accounts, and just transfer it to a brand new Laptop?
Or any smarter way than just building again each single one of my accounts with Windows accounts and new cookies?

Any info will help.
Thanks!

you can export cookies for sure, but I don't know about windows user accounts.
The smart way would be to make all your accounts on vmware and stock all your vm on external hdd. However, if you keep your cookies intact, I think it wouldn't be an issue to change computer as it happen everyday with normals ebay users, and maybe if you kept phone number active for all your accounts it will be better

I know with Macs you can use time machine so that if you get a new Mac you can export absolutely everything from your old one onto an external HDD and it will be exactly the same. I remember seeing something similar with windows as-well, I think its called Easy transfer, that should move everything over onto a new machine.

Microsoft has improved windows a lot over the years. If you plug your current hard drive (or copy the full content of it) to your new computer, Windows should automatically reconfigure itself to work in the new computer without losing your file.

If anything, you should be making periodic and frequent system backups to prevent any data losses.

What part of your comp seems to be dying? You can easily duplicate your files, although if you have a new computer it won't function properly by just duplicating your files because different parts have different drivers from new to old pc.. but you can get most of it

What OS is the computer running? You can easily transfer everything from your old Computer back to your new computer. Depending on your OS there are different ways to do that.

Portable browsers. 1 backup in the cloud and 1 backup outside of your house in case you get robbed. I store all my info that way.
I think it's bulletproof.

As long as its not the hard drive dying just pop it in a new computer. Also I had the same problem but when i switched to a computer with no cookies nothing happened to me but maybe i just got lucky.

Acronsis backup 11.5 is good.
