From other forums, I know to search the archives for answers before posting, but did not find what I was looking for......so here goes New to TI. Installed on desktop computer, created a backup disc, and backed up on ext. h/d. All went well. Have just gotten a laptop, and would like to create a clone. Both OS have XPpro. Can I hook the computers together thru USB ports and clone, or do I have to d/l to another medium? If I have to d/l, can I put the clone on the same ext h/d as the backup? I am planning to continue using both computers, but it sure would be easy if both were the same. Any suggestions or help would really be appreciated. thanks !
