Windows 7: Wndows 7 Easy File Transfer

Wndows 7 Easy File Transfer

I used the W7 Easy Transfer for the first time and much to my surprise it worked without a problem.

I previously asked questions of file transfer but after the answers I received I thought there might be a easier way to do this.

My situation was migrating files from a laptop HP dv7-1247 x64 to a Netbook Acer 722-BZ197 x64 which both use W7 HP SP1.

Inititing the file transfer they utilize the terms from " old computer to new computer on this procedure. There is no mention of W7 and only XP and Vista. W7 was placed on the market 22 months ago but is not included on the instruction.

As I proceded with this operation there a three methods available, migrating cable, flash card and network. Since I do not possess the cable nor flash card I selected the

After I intitiated the transfer from my " OLD HP with W7 " it proved me with a code number to be used with the " NEW Acer with W7.

Proceeding to tha ACER it asked me for this code which I placed in the box. A new screen appeared but much to my surpise it asked if this transfer is from XP, Vista or W7. I selected the W7 and the complete transfer of my files was accomplished in less then 29 Min.

I found NOTHING anywhere about W7 to W7 file transfer browsing

Did this slip thru the crack????????????????????
