Restoring from Acronis True Image

  1. I backed up my old computer with True Image 2010 and plan to throw it out. Can I restore to my new computer even though it has different hardware?

    low probability of booting or running smoothly as all the drivers will need to be reinstalled.

    Then if your prior system was say Windows/XP and now you're attempting to move to Vista or Win/7, there's lots of other issues.

    You will be able to use that backup to recover your User files.
