  1. transfering files


    Hello,


    I recently purchased a new computer that has windows 10. My old computer blew up and I didn't copy any of my files, photos or programs I used on my windows 7.

    I installed the set up and all went fine. I started to use my old email and old desktop, only because I had photos and some files and programs I wanted off of my old computer.

    Problem was they did not transfer and I want to know how I can get them to my Windows 10 desktop so I can use or find similar to the programs. I also need information off of some files.

    Any help, please


    Colleen

    :)

    Cable to transfer files

    OMG. I have never met anyone who actually bought one of those file transfer things.



    Firewire will do the same as USB, but faster, so will a cheap crossover cable. I can wlak you through the steps of moving data so you will not miss a beat.




    Anything more than $10 to buy a cable is too much.

    transfer files between computers on a home network


    I don't know why this is so hard to do but I would like to transfer files between a desktop PC running windows 10 pro and a laptop running windows 10 home. I would like to transfer files in both directions. Both computers are on the same home network and are connected wirelessly.

    Could some one provide either specific step by step instructions on how to do this (I googled and found a countless list of instructions that don't work)

    or a link to a reference.

    Thanks,

    I don't know if this is possible but it would be nice to see the computer sending the desired file in the explorer file manager of the computer receiving the desired file and then under the computer see a list
    of shared files and folders.

    Again, this seems like such a reasonable way of sharing files and folders. Shouldn't there be a simple way to do this?

    transfering files

    Need Help Files Transfer

    I have a computer running Windows XP Home Edition. That computer has two internal HDDs:

    The 1st HDD is C:\ that running Windows. And it has 20GB total of capacity.
    The 2nd HDD is D:\ that is empty. And it has 90GB total of capacity.

    The C:\ drive is almost run out of space (full). Is there a way I can transfer everything in the C:\ drive to the D:\ drive and begin to use the D:\ drive from there on as primary drive?
    Can the Windows Files Transfer feature in XP transfer everything I have in C:\ to D:\? If it cannot, then which way can I use to perform the above step?

    Thank you.
