Thanks for reply. My computer knowledge limited. Have Old Macbook Pro and Note 8. Plus my new Dell. How do I make sure Dell history is saved on Mac and Note 8, before I restore Dell?

OK So I found HISTORY transferred to Mac and Note 8. After I restore new Dell, My history will transfer back to Dell, from Mac and Note 8? I'm anxious because I don't know enuf. Thanks for help.
