    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.

    backing up old computer to new one

    I purchased a new computer with Windows 10 and my current computer has Windows 7. I was considering putting the old hard drive into the new computer until I found a topic here where it wasn't suggested.

    Users mentioned backing up the computer but there was no mention of software so I'm wondering what software do you use to transfer programs and documents from one computer to the next? Is the success transfer rate lower since it's transferring from a HP Windows 7 to a Cyberpower Windows 10 computer?

    I have a WD external drive on the way large enough for a backup file to transfer to the new computer. Is there a free program that can be used? My new computer has a SSD which is new to me but I think I'll only upload the previous computer files to the main hard drive. One of my current external WD hard drives has a file labeled "Do your data recovery" but don't know anything about it and that drive doesn't have enough room to do a backup anyway.
