    New Laptop - Data Transfer Advice Appreciated


    Hi,

    Appreciate any advice regarding transferring data from "old" laptop to new laptop.
    Both machines running Win 7 Pro.
    Data is standard files, mostly MS Office files and various PDF's, JPEG's, etc.
    FWIW purchased MS Office 365 Home - hoping Outlook and rest of office programs transfer smoothly.
    Thanks in advance!

    Programs don't transfer easily, if at all. Your data should be easy to transfer via a data transfer cable or you can network the computers or you can use a USB thumb drive.

    Some license are for a single PC/laptop, and not transferable.
    And you cannot move your existing laptop HDD to the new laptop HDD.
    License issue, which you are required to contact MS.
    Other software &or program is also due to 1 laptop that is first installed.
