    I have an older laptop with XP Home on it. I just bought a new laptop with Window 7 Premium 64 on it. I need to migrate my files from one to the other. Can I use Paragon Backup and Recovery Free 32 bit to backup the old systems files and then restore them to the new system using Paragon Backup and Recovery Free 64?

    Thanks,
    Vic

    So, the file created under 32 can be read and restored under 64? Does it matter if it is an image or a regular backup? (I have not yet downloaded the Paragon s/ware yet so I have no experience with it yet.)

    Yes,

    The archive files are the same, regardless of the "bit-ness" of the environment.

    No, it does not matter what type of backup it is, be it a complete image, differential, incremental or file level archive.

    Great. Thanks! I just downloaded Paragon B&R 10, installed it and am now running my first full backup of the older 32 bit XP machine. I presume I can do a selective restore of just the files I want on the new machine from this BU. Right?

    Absolutely,

    The File Transfer Wizard from the tools menu can be used to restore individual files from any Paragon archive.
