What happen when the user gets a new PC. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The hypothetical scenario is the following:

    • SCDPM 2012 R2.
    • Windows7/8/8.1 at laptops and desktops
    • The backup from "My Documents" is up and running
    • The user's PC is discarded (old hardware)(disjoined from the domain) and the user gets a new PC (new PC name)

    The questions are:

    Are lost the backups from old PC?

    How to access the old PC backups?

    Is it posible to link the old PC backups to the new PC backups(the user always can access his backups)?

    Thanks in advance!
