For starters I'd like to admit that since return of prodigy Ashraf I keep browsing your site on a daily basis. Thanks a lot Ashraf and al, you successfully defeated the saying 'Only God (Allah) is perfect': you created an absolutely perfect site. Amen.
Now back to a sinful earth. I have a pretty old laptop Dell Inspiron 5160 that among other software has Websphere and Visual Studio 2008 installed. My primary occupation is mainframe, but also I do some front end programming in Java/.Net, so I do not want to loose these programs. Recently display of the Inspiron died, but I can use external monitor.
Ashraf put in Paragon Drive 10 Personal SE review:
"If you have Paragon Drive Copy 10 Personal "Special Edition" , such as
from a GOTD giveaway, please note that the "Special Edition" does not
come with WinPE bootable media. Since there is no WinPE bootable media,
the P2P Adjust OS feature (the feature that allows users to migrate data
from one computer to another by adjusting the copied data to work on
the new hardware) is effectively useless since it only works off WinPE
bootable media*. If you have the full, retail version Paragon Drive Copy
10 Personal you will not face these limitations because you will have
access to WinPE bootable media… Create a virtual clone of your PC, including operating system, drivers
and settings, all your applications and files. Save it to the USB hard
drive and use it on another computer, just as if you're working from
your own PC…"
My question: if I'd acquire full version Paragon Drive Copy
10 Personal could I transfer completely all what is installed on Dell on an external hard drive and use this HD with my other laptop (Toshiba A505, Win7 64bit) as Ashraf stated above? Is there free software I can use (Ashraf mentioned Easeus v2)? And BTW I have Norton Ghost installed on Inspiron, can I use it for this purpose?
Thanks a lot for your time and effort. May God Almighty bless you!

Well if you have your data on an external hard drive there is no need to use any program. You should be able to plug it right into your other laptop and use it since it isn't a primary partition.
If it was an internal hard drive, yes you should be able to use the full version of PDC10P to do this.
And I don't know of any free program that has a P2P Adjust OS-like feature.

Thanks a lot, Ashraf!
Since all my data and software is on the internal drive, looks like I need to buy the full version of PDC10P in order to be able to run a virtual clone on another PC.
Wait a second--you said it was only the display that had died? You also have another couple options.
- Hook the computer up to an external monitor. If your computer is anything like the Inspirons I have, it has an FN key labeled something like CRT/LCD. Try that.
- Take the hard drive and put it into another laptop/computer that has two bays.
