Backing up business software


Doug29

Likes # 0

I bought a business with a till connected to a PC. I would like to upgrade the PC but have no installation discs for the point of sale software. I believe that it isn't possible to copy the program but is it possible to clone the PC and get a back up copy that way?

Many thanks for any replies.

This is a tricky one and I`ve never tried this but the theory is Virtual Machine. You need to run a Windows Virtual Machine which means you can run the old machine from within Windows 7 Ultimate or Business. Have a good read and I suggest you run both old and new computers side by side for a short while until you are confident it will do what you want.
