I Bought A New Computer...can I Back Up The Old And Load It To The New?

I basically want to make sure that I back up the old HP and want to download or upload to the new Dell computer.

Get an external harddrive with lots of memory. The standard now is about a terabite of memory. It's really easy to copy all your files to the harddrive and then transfer them to another computer. Plus, an external harddrive is portable, so you can take it anywhere.

I love my mass amount of memory and the safety of knowing I am not going to lose any of my files.

You can install the old HP hard-drive as a Secondary to the Main on the new Dell. -Two hard-drives. :-) That's what I did on mine, and I have the Secondary as my LINUX drive..

When I got my new computer all the documents and pics off my old one were put on to a CD Rom rewrite. That way I didn't have to clog up my new computer but I could download the documents I needed as and when rather than transferring everything. Hope this helps.
