Easy Transfer Files

I did a easy transfer from my prime laptop of all my files to a netbook. I would like to eliminate some files from the netbook but I don't know if I do that will I eliminate the files on the laptop also.

Thanks

No eliminating files from the netbook should have no effect on the laptop. If the easy transfer was done correctly it is a one way transfer not a file/folder sync.

Just to be sure I would backup the laptop before.

BTW love the user name and sig.
