How to restore applications on a new Thinkpad with Rescue / Recovery

Hello,

I have a T61 under XP Pro sp3. I want to buy a new Lenovo T serie and another new workstation under Win 7 64bits.

I'm wondering about how to restore (from a Resc/Recov backup) all my applications on these new computer from a backup without having to restore the OS and /or to install all my working applications on these new PCs.

In addition, I loosed some Setup of my used applications.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thank you

Hi Casablanca,

 

  Since Win7 and XP are having different registry settings, so there is no 100% migration here. This is more preferred to re-install your programs again. However you might use System Migration Assistance to migrate browsers bookmark or specific folder to your new machine
