    Transfer data, external ->new nstall =My Videos/Pictures/Music exist


    Clean install of W10
    Plugged in external HDD to transfer backed up files back to new unit.
    sperateley copied and pasted inot coresponding folders on new machine:
    Pictures
    Desktop
    The started
    Documents: (258 items)
    Tamsfer goes to 99% and then i get this:

    Transfer data, external ->new nstall =My Videos/Pictures/Music exist [​IMG]

    Saying a folder named My Videos already exists
    I skip and it presents the same for My Videos and My Music
    Heres the thing, i cannot find in either the orginal "Documents" files folder on the external HDD or the target Documents and of those folders>
    it also present on for desktop.ini which i also skip.

    The target (new install) Documents folder shows 254 items( obviously the 4 i skipped)

    What am i missing, are there hidden files folders?
    How should i handle these folders?

    :)

    Sending pictures to an existing CDR


    I used XP for almost fourteen years without a problem. Now that I have windows10 I haven't been able to add pictures to exist8ing cd's. No problems with data or music. I also cannot view the picture CD's. I double click burn to disc but nothing happens. I get a list but no way to view it. I get a notice,these files are ready....etc. but when I click on a folder to transfer new contents...nothing happens. I'm at a loss on how to procede. Any step by step would be greatlyb appreciated.

    data transfer to new computer

    No one can guess how you transfered your data.

    To transfer your personal data (documents, pictures, music, etc.) copy the files and folders from the old computer to an external USB hard drive or a USB flash drive; then copy them to the corresponding folders (i.e., Documents, Music, Pictures, etc.) in your
    user account
    in the new computer.

    Programs cannot be transferred; they have to be re-installed in the new computer.

  4. Transfer data, external ->new nstall =My Videos/Pictures/Music exist

    My data folders (Documents, Pictures, Videos, Music, etc) are on DRIVE E: not Drive C:

    I THINK the programs are looking in the wrong place.

    All my Programs are stored on Drive C:

    Drive D: is my Recovery Image

    Drive E: is where all my Data files were stored (Documents-Pictures-Videos, etc).

    Drive F: has: Clipart-Document Themes 14-Media-MSOCache-Office 14 - Stationery - and Templates.

    Hewlett Packard set my computer system up.

    Before I did what you suggested above about MOVING files - I had only one listing for Drive ETransfer data, external ->new nstall =My Videos/Pictures/Music exist :(DATADRIVE1-Docs-Pics-Video-Music). Now Drive E: shows up listed under THIS PC as E:\ (and it contains ALL my data - docs-Pics-Video-Music)). All these data
    folders also show up listed under THIS PC in the DOCUMENT folder; AND, all the datat folders also show up in DATADRIVE1-Docs-Pixs-Music-Video!!!! Whatever happened when I moved the files caused them to appear in several places!

    I don't think the programs know where to find anything!!!! DUD!

    I also have 4 external Western Digital hard drives (but I don't have all of them plugged in simultaneously). My problem with the external hard drives is that now Windows does recognize my 6 TB one - I know it is working because the little light is on and
    blinking....the drive just does not show up in File Explorer.

    Do you have any suggestions?
