    Hi :)

    You can transfer the data, but not the operating system...

    You will have to buy that...

  7. Was the data backed up to the external drive using the backup utility in XP?

    Clickfree Automatic Back-up HDDs were semi-popular last year around this time and slowly died off. Their catch phrase was the ability to auto backup like the OP mentioned.

    @OP:

    There are tutorial videos on Clickfree's website, found HERE , that you can use to become familiar with the process itself. If you used the Clickfree application for the backups (which it sounds like you did) there should be a restore option and you will simply need to install the Clickfree software on the Windows 7 computer.
  9. Ahh I see, it uses its own backup application.

    I thought he might be having issues restoring an XP backup with the Windows 7 utility.

    That actually was the semi-downfall source of those particular drives. You could use them as a simple external storage option but it was hard to get control away from the application itself to allow for it. Somehow the application is written into the controller for the drive itself in the enclosure. Only one I've seen like that in a long time.
