Re: Not so sure

Norton ghost or something I suppose could do what you describe.
I have a system drive -windows, programs, LR catalogs on it.
I have a mirrored data drive(s) in the old box. Can't un raid/mirror them without data loss (so it warns me when I try) and besides, the new box has a 1tb drive for data vs 750 in the old so moving the data is gonna happen anyway. Last did it 4 years ago - but I had a LOT less data then!
I've had instances over the years where a copy operation fails - power fails, weird things happen, who knows. Some theorize windows has issues if you drag/drop/copy over 32,768 files at one time.
I do backups of both drives.
But moving from vista to win 8 you can't just copy everything over...it won't run/work. Is that a windows thing, a good or bad thing? It is what it is.
Fresh installs always run better than multiple upgrades/updates.
