Hi, I am running Windows 7 and am thinking about getting Windows 8/8.1. I want to backup all of my data for a seamless transition, and I am wondering what is the best application i can use to backup my data on Windows 7 and restore it all on Windows 8/8.1. Thanks.

What's wrong with manual (copy/paste) backup? There are no issues with compatibility between old & new Windows versions then.

I don't trust automated backup solutions which work in the background anyway, I'd sooner do it myself. No fun but at least I can rest easy knowing it's done, and it's not compressed either so accessing it requires no proprietary software.
