Duplicating Windows 95 Installation to a New Hard Disk

By: Arie Slob

Installing a new hard drive? If your new drive is faster than the old one, it's worth it to move Windows 95 to the new drive. Microsoft's knowledge base article 166172 shows you how to swap your current primary boot hard disk (usually drive C) with a different hard disk and retain your current files and system configuration in the process. This primarily involves installing Windows 95 on a new hard disk and ensuring proper identification of the new hardware. This process uses Microsoft Backup to back up and restore files and configuration and registry settings.
