 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 +It is becoming more and more likely that someday you will update **Windows** or buy a new **PC** and need to re-install [[Index]] (AS).
 +
 +As well as installing **AS**, all **Backups**,​ **Logs**, **Settings**,​ **Options**,​ and **Templates** will need to be migrated.
 +
 +===== Details =====
 +
 +These few steps define how to migrate from an //old PC// to a //new PC//.
 +
 +  * On both PC ensure the latest version of **AS** is installed.
 +
 +  * On both PC use **Tools > Options** in **AS** and note the location of the three **AS Folders**.
 +
 +  * On the //old PC// use **Tools > Backup A.S. Options** to save the settings.
 +
 +  * Close **AS** on both PC.
 +
 +  * Copy the **AS Folders** from //old PC// to //new PC// using **Windows/​File Explorer** via some intermediate storage such as a USB pen drive memory stick.
 +
 +  * On the //new PC// run **AS** and use its **Tools > Restore A.S. Options** to restore the settings.
 +
 +Use a similar technique, but with the steps in a different order, to migrate from an //old Windows// version to a //new Windows// version on the same PC.
