Transferring to new computer

My hard drive failed so I can't tell which version of Popfile I had installed. It's many years old so I'm sure it's nowhere near the current version. However, even though I can't boot from that drive I'm able to access the majority of files using a USB enclosure.

I'm looking to install teh current version of Popfile on my new system but I'm wondering if there is any way to transfer all the data from my previous installation so I don't have to start from scratch. If it's transferable, what file(s) am I looking for on the old hard drive and where would I find them?

After I install PF on the new system where do I transfer the files to on the new hard drive.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    If you are running Windows, take a look at this FAQ page:

    http://getpopfile.org/docs/howtos:backup

    There are a couple of places on the old HD where your User Data files could be, depending on what version of POPFile is installed.
