  1. recovery of full backup

    I did a "full backup" to external 1TB harddrive on old laptop - how do I restore all files, pictures, favorites, etc. to new laptop? Looked at recovery under settings but getting nothing but confused. Any ideas?

    Data backup and recovery help thread

    We get heaps of threads on this, so lets make a nice organised list of programs people can use for backing up, restoring, and recovering data.

    For a quick start to this, some pointers.

    1. If you formatted a drive and did NOT write to it, recovery is possible. If you installed any data over it (such as windows, or copying files to it) then you need to restore a backup, or accept that you will have lost some, most, or all of your data.

    2. Backups are not perfect - for example, a virus that killed your machine could also be in your backup. try and backup your important data first, not your operating system and useless files - and store it in more than one place if possible (for example, an external hard drive AND on DVD)

    Now to the programs:

    Free Data recovery software
    Piriform Recuva - Highly recommended by TPU users, myself included.

    The following were listed by 95viper in another thread, i dont know if he's reccomending them or just listed them.
    Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier A nice one.*Smile recovery of full backup :)
    UNDELETE 360
    Free File Recovery 1.1
    Glary Undelete

    Paid Data recovery software

    Free backup/restore software

    Paid backup/restore software
    Acronis True Image Home
    Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 2011 (Paid)[/QUOTE]

    please people, help me fill in the blanks so i can request this to get stickied. *Smile recovery of full backup :)
