I have a new computer that is replacing an old machine that has PostGIS installed.
The old computer has a 2nd hard drive where the PostGIS data directory is stored. I want to move this drive over to the new computer and continue to use it for data storage.
Can I install the 2nd hard drive in the new machine and when installing PostGIS point it to the data directory on this hard drive and everything will work?
Or do I have to back my database up and restore it?
PostGIS on the old and new machines are the same version (2.0 on PostgreSQL 9.1), the operating systems are windows xp (32 bit) vs windows 7 (64 bit).
