Windows 7: Advice on transfering files, etc from a Win XP to Win 7 Pro

15 Dec 2013   #11

7 home premium 64 bit

Wow i leave for 2 seconds and 7 forums explodes

Usb flash stick is a good option for small amounts of files. Obviously you wouldn't try that on a full 1tb hard drive.

Networking: A good option for people who know how to do so. No size limit.

I have never used a transfer cable so i don't know enough to comment.

Bottom line everyone has there preferred method of getting the job done and i think FDM has chosen his.
