Default How to mirror old laptop to new laptop

Hi guys,

Sorry not sure if this is ok to post here, but ill give it a shot.

I have a laptop couple years old running windows 7. I want to use my newer laptop windows 7. However I want to copy everything on hard drive, including cookies, from one PC to the other. I have no idea where to start.

Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated!!! :D:D:D

Hi,

You would have to use a Hard Drive Cloning software to do that, here is a list :

Comparison of disk cloning software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freewares exist

All the best.

Acronis Migrate Easy 7.0 is pretty good & does what you require.

Key Features
Copy an old hdd to a new one;
Use either automatic or manual upgrade modes;
Install a new hard disk drive as a boot disk or as an additional storage device;
Re-deploy your old hard disk;
Follow the easy to use Windows XP-like wizard-driven interface;
Migrate large disks (over 180GB).

Partition Management
Resizes transferred partitions to match new hard disk size;*
Includes special sector-by-sector support for other partitions & corrupted file systems;
Creates, deletes, moves & copies partitions.

Security & Safety
Pending operations: a hard disk installation scenario is first created, & only then implemented;
An old disk could be securely wiped;
When partitions are copied an original HDD remains unchanged.

So it probably mirrors Viruses and Trojans also?

Any prudent end user is expected to have good anti-virus/anti-spyware/anti-malware to preclude these issues.:D

I've used Acronis in the past & they are pretty solid programs.

I'm ordering a new laptop next week from HP.

Before I transfer I'm going to run CCleaner, AVG, Malwarebytes, and ESET.

Hope that does the trick.
