  • Well, if you "backup" your files then to use them you have to restore them to the same computer, that's what a backup is. What you to do is get a portable hard drive, copy all your files to the portable drive and then when you get your new computer you just copy them from the portable hard drive. If you use some type of email program like Outlook you can export your contacts to a file and then import it into your new email program on your computer.

    I change computers all the time - I just got a external 2T hard drive! That's lots of space! I have 3 laptops and an iPad that I want to be able to share files with.

    Enjoy your new computer!
