new PC.

Likely Supported: the application may be compatible with new PC.

Unsupported: the application is not compatible with new PC.

Existing: the application already exists on both PCs, transfer is not necessary.

6. Click edit button of Accounts.

And you need to be authorized by entering the password of the account before selecting User Account Settings, User data, Personalization and Power Options.

The password of the account on destination PC is same as the one on source PC after transferring.

Recover via Image File

At this step, there are two different operations:

If you are upgrading the operating system and wish to transfer the data in image file in new operating system, just run Todo PCTrans again, select Image Transfer->Recover via Image File.

Suppose you are transferring data to a separate computer, please copy the image file to the target computer and run the program, select Image Transfer->Recover via Image File.

1. Select Recover via Image File and click the Recover.

2. Select the image file you created before and click Recover, then select applications, files and accounts in the image file and click Recover button to start. You could also click the Edit to only select a part of items to recover.

Todo PCTrans only supports pointing to the drive letter of target partition for transfer.
Unlike Files option, Applications will be transferred to "Program" folder on new PC by default. Usually, the "program" folder is located on C: drive.
When the transfer is finished, a reboot is required to refresh all the data.

By the way, the image file can also be opened by double-click, and the data files can be copied from the image directly.
