Restoring data to a new system

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

Restoring data to a new system

Postby THX » Thu Jan 25, 2018 4:27 pm

My trusty dedicated Windows 7 Cumulus PC has failed.

Fortunately, the hard drive is ok. I have the hard drive installed in a temporary PC right now.

I will have a new PC on order. What are the best steps to get the data transferred from the old hard drive (on the temporary PC) to the new hard drive on the new system?

I have 8 years of data that I'd like to transfer all contained within the C:\Cumulus folder.

Would you recommend that I stick with Windows 7 or is Windows 10 now preferred for Cumulus?

I would simply copy the entire Cumulus directory to the new PC. Doesn’t matter whether you use 7 or 10.

Thanks Steve.

Everything worked just fine using this method:

Robocopy \\cumulus\c$\cumulus c:\cumulus /e /log:c:\temp\cumulus.txt


Return to “Cumulus 1”
