Change from 32bit to 64bit Win10


[link to this post]
 
I wish to change my PC from 32bit to 64bit. The hardware is fine and I have can easily reinstall Win10 64bit back again but my problem is how do I go about that without having to individualy reinstall all the ancilary programs . I have several backups NTI EZ, EaseUSTodo as well as Windows own disk image.
Is there any simple way to reload everything from a back up without the operating system ?

When upgrading from 32- to 64-bit Windows you need to reinstall any programs. Data can be transferred via a backup, but not program installations. It's a good thing anyway, as a fresh installation will remove the crud that tends to build up over the years.
