Good day Everyone,

I am in a sticky situation, I have a Windows 7 pc with a very particular and custom app - the app was made for our small family business and it keeps all customer and job info. The app cannot be reinstalled, so if this pc goes, I am done. I have been thinking and I think I need to make a clone of my current Win7 pc, so that we can keep using the application without worry.

What could I do to turn that pc into a virtual machine and then use that VM on a daily basis - this VM would need to also allow for new data to be saved and current data to be changed - on a daily basis.

All and any suggestions are very welcome =)

What would my solution be - free if possible?

Thank you

You can create a VHD Image file of your Windows 7 Source machine. and save the image to an External USB HDD, then attach that USB drive to your Windows 10 Host Machine, and install Oracles VirtualBox. Install the Image file to VirtualBox virtual drive.
