Can I use a Win7 backup on a new Win10 install?

Postby Gill_R » Sat Nov 25, 2017 6:29 pm

There is a weekly-run, incremental backup (saved on an external drive) for my husband's PC, and the PC appears to have died. If he does need to replace it, the new PC will have Win10 installed.

Will we be able to use the backup which was created in Win7 to restore files/software/settings on a Win10 machine?

(Sorry if this is a really dumb question, but I'm a Mac user!)

Hi,

Yes, you can install FBackup under Windows 10 and you can restore the backup you created under Windows 7.
