My father recently had his old laptop (Vista) die and he purchased a new one which runs on windows 8. He asked me to get all of the old data off of his old laptop and onto the new one. He isnt very tech savy so Id like to put everything back where it was exactly as he had it. Is there a way to backup only the files and programs without carrying over the OS or anything like that and then restore these files onto the new OS? The vista laptop wont boot (it blue screens) so some type of live cd (linux or something) would be best. Is there a tool out there that would allow me to do this?
