BAckup Windows 10/ New computer Windows 7 Pro

I need to do a full restore.  My backup is Windows 10, but my new computer is Windows 7 Pro.  I am hoping I do not have to purchase a Windows 10.  Has anyone successfully done this?  I see lots of Window 7 to 10, but not 10 to 7. Thank you!

@KH5000

Thanks for posting an unusual scenario!

 

The restore process from a Win10 backup to Win7 should be exactly the same as if you were to go 7 to 10.

The restore process downloads files.

 

If you need some references for the restore process, please refer to the page linked below.

I'm seeing a full restore that started and completed on 10/06/16.  Do you have any other questions or comments?

 

If not then please mark the appropriate post as a solution.

I second the note from @JaredG about a successful restore.

 

Just be sure to re-install Mozy on the Windows 7 build to ensure you continue backing up.

If we have addressed all of your concerns, please mark this thread as solved.
