Windows 7: Transferring Files to new Computer

Transferring Files to new Computer

Добар дан свима,

I have bought a new Computer Set. As you can see, I've updated my system specs.

From 32-bit Starter to 64-bit Ultimate. Ha!

Anyways, is there any way to move my files and docs from my old laptop to my new computer?

Moving via network connection is currently not available at the moment, since I haven't set up my Network yet.

Any instructions would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance!

Tucker

There are various options but by far the simplest is to spend a little time and set up your network, and use this to transfer the files

Setting up the network and transferring the files is likely to be quicker and safer than any other method

Once you have set up your network you can use windows file manager to drag and drop files between systems

The other alternative would be some type of mobile storage, a USB stick or External drive, which you copy files from the old system to and then copy files from the stick to the new system - depending on the size of the stick and number of files this may take many hours
