My friends computer was showing signs of a failing hard drive and then got the black screen that would not let her boot up the E-Machine PC. So i told her that i could back up her files, which i did, and give it to her so she at least had her info.

She went and purchased a Windows 8 Laptop and is wondering if i can restore all her files for her. I told her i would give it a try.

Is there a fool proof way to do this?
