System Transfer

Since most hardware requires corresponding driver installed to be functional, users cannot simply move system to a new machine with different hardware configuration and expect the system to run as original due to lack of necessary hardware driver.

EaseUS Todo Backup provides System Transfer feature which can help users solve the trouble easily. The most common situations this option can handle are:

1. Migrate system to a new and more powerful PC.
2. Restore and keep old system available after some hardware upgraded.

System Transfer is only available for Home and higher editions.

Essential preparations before the recovery include:

1. A valid system image file created with System backup or Disk/partition backup option.
2. A proper WinPE emeregncy disk/USB which can be loaded on target machine correctly.
3. The inf driver file of the new hardware on target machine.

It is allowed to place the system image file and the inf driver file on the WinPE bootable drive if you have enough free space there.


1. Load target machine from the WinPE emergency disk and ensure the drive which contains system image files has connected to the machine already.
2. Find the option System Transfer in the main window.
3. Browse and load the system image file.

Sometimes, if you have some special hard drives, say, hardware RAID, SCSI drive, they may be not listed by default in WinPE environment. Then corresponding driver needs to be installed in order to make the drives available. For more info, you can read:
What to do if the drive cannot be listed by default.

6. After system recovery finishes, you may get some prompted windows asking for driver (.inf file) of a specific hardware. You can find the driver according to the listed hardware info, and add it to ensure you can load from the system normally after the entire system migration is done.
