    Live archiving of 'obsolete' Windows setups

    Live archiving of 'obsolete' Windows setups

    By Tracey Capen

    In the most recent Best Utilities column, I discussed tools I was adding to a new Windows 7 PC. I also noted that I imaged the old system to have as an archive.

    In this column, I'll report on restoring the archive as a virtual machine.

    The full text of this column is posted at (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Hi Tracey - in the section about "Making VirtualBox work nicely with True Image", and also in another article I saw about True Image, it was not mentioned that True Image doesn't work with Vista - I found that in the "requirements" section on their site. Important for me because I wanted to use the Universal Restore feature to move my vista machine to a virtualbox on my win10 machine, which I haven't had any luck with thus far (using macrium reflect).

    Just thought it would be helpful to point this out. This fact also surprises me since it *is* apparently compatible with XP!
