1. Download and install the "Reflect 8 Home - 30 Day Trial" on both computers from the following link.


Note: The free version will work too, but it does not have the restore to dissimilar hardware feature that 'could' be needed if any problems were to result.


2. Using the Reflect 8 trial, create a Full Image of both computers to an external USB storage drive.


3. Restore the desired image to whichever computer is desired.




Hope that helps.


Regards, Andrew
