completely copy the computer

By pontiac69 ·
I want to make a windows image to copy onto another computer,
Backups are so confusing in Windows10 so many dialog prompts I can't navigate.

I want to make an exact copy of my daughters computer she uses for school on the home computer with her special programs she has reading disabilities.

( Basicaly how to completely copy the computer at it's current state onto another )
With all it's files and settings / username etc. Completely overwriting and giving exclusivity to system copy is not an issue

Will do what you want but and this is a very big BUT the hardware you are coping to needs to be exactly the same as the computer that the image is taken from to work.

Different computers with different specs like CPU, M'Board, Video Card and so on have different Hardware Abstraction Layers so ythe image from one will not work on the other.
As you want this for Home the Home version which is free to use will suit your needs but if you think you can copy one computer to a different one with different hardware it's not going to work and I would suggest you work out the Backup Option for your Daughters system.
