I have a windows desktop for development purpose.
The desktop runs windows xp, is only used by single user. It has many applications like Java, ClearCase client, Filezilla, firefox, Outlook and lot others.
A new machine is on the way(with Windows 7). Current strategy is to create a backup folder. Move every valuable data there. Copy the data onto new machine. Is there a betterway ? do I move to new machine with minimum disruption?
If I boot both machines with Linux and do an rsync appropriate folders will it save anytime?
