I am bored version seven home almost there a year ago and finally starting to use it.

I was surprised how few topics are in this forum. I guess everyone has the pro version :-)

I’ve been working with computers for years now. Is my fear unwarranted?  When setting up a new computer for someone, the old one is typically four / five years old. There’s loads of apps they aren’t using, there’s apps that they’ve uninstalled that still leaves things in the registry and App data folder, etc. loads of apps that have gone through lots of versions, with files in app data and entries in registry for the old versions.  I’ve heard it called winrot?.

So to try to give them as pristine a new machine as possible and leave all the clutter behind I manually copy my docs, desktop music, favorites, etc. I’ll install chrome if they use it iTunes etc.

Manually copy the google bookmarks, If they have a PST for their email I will manually import it into the new mail profile /pst.

Yes! Very tedious and time-consuming. Tabs Yes! Very tedious and time-consuming. Fabs autobackup can make this go much quicker,right?   

But Does it bring over the clutter to?

I was working on one machine or the person uses fire fox I think it was. Loads and loads and loads of versions since they first got the machine in all that is in at does it bring over the clutter to?

I don’t think the freshly installed Firefox needs all those folders from previous versions

If you check the box in fabs auto backup for an app, does it bring everything?  Or know to bring just current info / leave old versions files?

And this is also getting things from registry, right?

Also does this install as a portable app - can you install this to a thumb drive to take from machine to machine?  Or besides the install directory, it’s adding things to the registry/ can’t run as a portable app

Finally, is there a change log for each version available?

Thanks!
