Deploying Sys Img on new laptop


Recommended Posts

So my sys img is 142GB but then there's an additional 92Gb worth of files namely the "data files' backup"

I bought a new laptop, it's got a 256GB SSD. I'm going to deploy this sys img on it.

Is this sys img going to take up 142GB on the new laptop or 232GB?

 

The 92GB file looks like this whereas the WindowsBackUp (142GB) looks like a regular Windows folder icon

If you restore an image if you can on a new computer with old Win 7 backup on a new system. It will restore everything in the image whatever the original size of the original.

Are just needing the data or the whole thing OS and all?

Literally everything. But here's the thing: my C drive is currently 142GB which is what's in that SysImg Folder (that looks like a default Win 10 folder in terms of the icon). But then there's this icon in the OP that contains 92GB worth of files, apaprently that's the "data files backup", what's that? I don't think i need this 92Gb file then, right? Because I only 142GB space occupied on my C drive, not 142+92= 234 GB

You see here, I have this one icon on the top that's 92GB and the WindowsImageBackup or whatever on the bottom that's 142GB and on my C drive 142GB worth of space is occupied. So I'm keeping the folder on the bottom, but I have no idea what the icon on the top that's 92Gb is about. Should I just delete it?

I highly recommend you make a image of your current laptop first with something besides Windows backup. Something like Macrium reflect free and create the restore USB as well.

Windows backup and restore has been depreciated by Microsoft and MS recommends using a 3rd party solution for system images.

If you still have the old computer, I suggest just getting the data manually and just transferring that.
