Windows 7: Windows Easy Transfer says not enuff space...?

Windows Easy Transfer says not enuff space...?


want to use easy transfer and cable to transfer files from my tower to my new laptop.
new laptop has tons of space. yet when I follow the easy transfer steps to transfer my old user account info to the new computer it says not enuff space, the disc is full, try removing some files first. well the disk has plenty of space.

really all I want to do is transfer folders and files I want into the new computer in folders I have made for the event. Not really into transferring the entire contents of the old computer. is this easy transfer a waste of time then? the darn cable was $18 lol

more details...

laptop has 239 GB free space according to my computer. the 2 computers do not recognize each other unless easy transfer is turned on so I cannot even transfer files like I do to my external hard drive as both end of the usb cables are the same, not one with a slot and one with a square type connector :-(

Can an Easy Transfer archive be used/read without using Easy Transfer?
This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background. My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty. ...
