    Migrating applications and settings from my previous installation to my new Win 10 HDD.


    I have to install a new disk into my desktop, I will still run Win 10 Pro. Is there a way to migrate my apps, settings and data from the old disk to the newly clean, vanilla Win 10 on the new disk? Everything is on one desktop and I have to remove the original disk at some stage, but I can leave it installed as a secondary disk for migration purposes.

    :)

  2. How to migrate to a new HDD

    My HP Envy 23 all in one 10 pt touch screen began giving me the ol Smart drive detects imminent HDD Failure.

    So I got a new 1 TB drive and everything is backed up on another external drive.

    How do I migrate to a new drive all my windows account settings?

    If I use the on-board recovery it will load and install the original Win 8.1. I had upgraded to Windows 10 Pro. So do I need to just use my old win pro disk and reinstall windows and all my programs again?

    Is there anyway to image the whole drive with all my programs, registry files and the lot and paste it onto the new drive?

    Any easier suggestions than reinstalling everything would be great?

    Anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks Chette

  4. Migrating applications and settings from my previous installation to my new Win 10 HDD.

    Installing a new HDD to replace a HDD of the same size that failed.

    I have a Windows 10 OS installed on my C: drive. I had data stored on an HDD designated as D: drive. That second drive failed and was replaced by a new HDD. Both are the same size and type of drives, except different manufactures. The new HDD is not
    listed in File Explorer. It is listed in Computer Management under Device Manager as a Disk drive. Disk Management under Storage does not list the new HDD.

    I have tested the new HDD with software downloaded from the manufacture and it has passed all tests. At least that software was able to access the new drive and perform low level tests to see if it is operational.

    Looking at the events log for this HDD, I find an event warning that says "Device ... was not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match." Opening up the properties indicates drivers have been installed. Reading the volume information results in: "Volume
    information for this disk cannot be found"

    I suspect that the problem with the volume information is associated with the warning in the event log. I removed the HDD, restarted the PC then shut it down to start the installation process over again. No change in the event log or status of the new
    HDD. Can anyone suggest how I can get past that warning?
