If i were to back up win 7 on a laptop and install win 7 on a second pc (difrent brand and parts entirely) will it back up things like photoshop, games, blender and other applacation... E.g if some laptop brakes or gets stolen and you get a new one will the back up re install every thing or just the images, movies and music.

or is there a  way to clone a hdd with out installing the driver;s, if you know what i mean.

just curious...


windows sucks. if you make a disk image and try to use it on other hardware you get tons of erros and terrible performance. back up data (like photoshop projects, images, and so on). if you need to recover, you will have to reinstall your drivers a nd programs, then move the data back over.
