    I am buying a new computer and both are win xp systems. I have lots of downloaded programs and program related files to transfer and wasn't impressed with reviews on any of the software and I wondered if true image would do this well in addition to the advertised use. o_O
    If not do you all have recommendation for the best (and most economical) software to perform this function? I do not want to transfer all the files, just selected ones, plus things like addresses and IE favorites.

    Why not use the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" at start/accessories/system tools??
    That should handle quite a bit. Programs would have to be re-installed on the new machine as far as I know. NTBackup is also available on XP for backing up and restoring files.

    Hello ddensmore,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis products (

    I couldn't quite understand what you want to do. Do you actually want to transfer your Windows to a new computer? In this case you may create an image of the corresponding partition and restore it to the new drive or just clone the old drive to the new one and after that delete the other (non-system) partitions on the new drive if you need.

    Also you may extract files from the image with the help of the "Explore image" tool. Just mount the image and extract the necessary files.

    If you have any further questions please feel free to ask them here or send a letter to

    Thank you.
