I want to get a new computer, but there are programs on my current computer that will take too long to install from their original disks, and there are some in which I may not even have the disk anymore (ie, adobe creative suite, microsoft office, etc). If I buy Acronis True Image Home 2009 and make a full backup of my current system into an external hard drive, how can I re-install my programs from that external hard drive into my new computer. Would I have to install Acronis into the new computer as well? Or what? I currently have WinXP Home. I plan on buying a computer from Dell with WinXP Pro pre-installed. Any help gladly appreciated.
