Windows 7: I want to transfer files from xp to win7 via LAN

29 Jan 2011   #11
coup d etat


ok, so the drive was basically undiscoverable because it wasnt completely set up. i thought i had labeled the drive by right clicking on the partition, clicking properties, and putting a label next to the icon under the general tab. but that doesent do it. you have to right click the partition and select "change drive letter and paths". after doing that the new drive showed up and i can now save files to that partition.
thanks alot guys.
