Backup Solution for ailing PC

  shaneoneill 11:44 14 Jul 09

I think my 6 year old PC is just about to pack it in. Its been making some very strange noises for the last few weeks which are gradually getting worse by the day, especially at start up.

I have another PC in the wings ready to take the mantle but I would like to hit the ground running with this one. Is there any software out there that will allow me to totally backup each and every file (inc all emails in Outlook) and programme and install it on the new PC with minimal fuss? Are there any pitfalls to be aware of?

Much appreciated in advance for any pointers ..

XP Files and Settings Transfer wizard is a good first stop.

Programs - Accessories - System Tools

Or if from XP to Vista
