    which computer do I install WET on, the old one or the new one or both, also does it matter if one system is 32 bit and the other 64 bit? thanks

      Depends on what OS you are using. Windows 7 already has it installed so no need to install it on that. Windows 10 does not have it installed so you would have to install it on that. You cannot use it cross platform – as in x86 to x64 will not work.

    Struggled to find a solution to restore the MIG file i created for a customer’s laptop migration. This information provided has helped me tremendously. With no luck using usmt or willingness to pay for the third party migration tool, this process has saved me tons of time and effort. Thank you!!

    I tried to copy the migwiz file where your instructions said, but I got messages that some files were duplicates of existing files and that for other files I need permission that I don’t have. Help!

Any suggestions would be helpful

      Just to confirm what your issue is; you have taken a WET backup from a Windows 7 x64 machine and now you are trying to restore that file to a Windows 10 x64 machine?

  5. The video card just went out in my lap top and I have a gig tomorrow, wasn’t sure how I was going to get everything off the back up hard drive to my new computer then I found this! Thanks! Transferring now (I think), easy peasy.
