Windows 7: Easy File Transfer asked me for a Password which I never entered.

Easy File Transfer asked me for a Password which I never entered.

I guessed and guessed but no luck.

I finally clicked on cancel and the Transfer immediately finished.

The new PC appears to be complete EXCEPT any Passwords from the old System appear to be gone.

Is there a way to discover the Password it was looking for and just transfer that file?

The actual transfer to the new PC from the external USB-3 drive took over 6 hours.

Best regards,

Mike Lynch

Will Easy File Transfer "merge" multiple Easy File Transfer files?

If so, does it skip duplicate files as it merges?
