Hi there everyone, as per usual when I need something answering I head to you guys as I usually get a straight forward uncomplicated answer, which I thank you for:thumbsup:
I have a laptop, which i'm sure the backlight is about to go, the battery is also dead and I can only really run it from power.
However I have a couple of programs on there that I would need to reinstall on a new laptop and I dont have the expertise to do this...namely Goldmine and the company I contract to dont have either, without paying for them.
I had a goldmine guy but he left. I have the software still and a valid license so I dont have any problems there.
Take the hardrive out of the old laptop and use this with a new laptop, perhaps in an enclosure, gives me additional space and doesnt interfere with the new hardrive (dual boot??) and if so what are the issues
Can I take a copy of the hardrive and place on a new one, (however I'm assuming this will also copy the OS which is likely to be vista on my new laptop as opposed to XP on my old one
I need to make the cheapest and easiest option as I contract only to this company and dont wish to spend any of my own money unless neccessary.
I have a version of the same goldmine on a dual boot MAC, however the database is likely to be 12 months out of date, if I sync this using a spare license we have, will this overwrite the original database on the server, or overwrite the copy on the MAC? and if it does overwrite the server how easy is it to use the backup copy?
(appreciate I can use a goldmine forum, but sometimes I find answer over complicated and I dont understand) but would appreciate your comments..
Any ideas on the best way to do this
:friends: Couldnt find a hug...appreciate an thoughts on this THANKS!!!!
