    Great tip. This thread is kinda old and needs updated input. Thanks!

    To clarify, this technique is only to be used to transfer individual files from another system. Restoring the image from another PC would most likely be a disaster, but if the image was made on a system with a similar motherboard chipset (Intel vs. AMD), it just might fly. Worth a try if you have the time...

    It's called "Backup and Restore":

    In German, it should be "Sichern und Wiederherstellen".

    Updating to Windows 7 or from Windows 7 to a newer version of Windows?

    Keep in mind that what you are asking has nothing to do with backing up Windows. Do you really want to take this thread away from what it really concerns?

    Let me try to nip this in the bud. If you are going to upgrade Windows, you should be backing up your important data first anyway. So, if your data is backed up and you have to reinstall programs, you might as well just do a clean installation of Windows 10.

    Now that we covered that, what you probably mean is Repair Install (repariere die Installation).
