Well it happened - my PC fried. Its beyond HDD failure. I think the motherboard on this old emachine is burned up 9power surge). Anyway, I was lucky to create TIB complete backup of PC prior to failure. Now Im shopping for new PC. Of course, machines dont have all the software I had etc. Im wondering if I restore the TIB image on the new PC, can I get my old software etc on the new PC? I bet Id have a ton of hardware issues etc. Is there any hope, or am I only going to get my document files back?
