Default how to move my work to another PC

Sorry, this probably is very noobish, but if I'm changing PCs what do I have to do so as not to lose my work?

I remember it being explained in a FAQ somewhere but I can't find it...

The simplest and safest is to simply move the entire /PRIME95 folder.

Note that if you change your hardware, your registration key to Primenet v.5 may change as well...

Makes sense; however I moved assignments twice last week and as soon as I did the Man.Comm. from the destination PC they registered to the new PC. If Prime95 assigned a new key I do not know but it didn't affect me.

It might be different if the OS is different; i.e. Intel to UNIX or MAC.
