Windows 7: Easy Transfer Error Message

Easy Transfer Error Message

I am trying to transfer files from my old computer (OS Windows 7 32 bit) to my new computer (OS Windows 7 32 bit) using Easy File Transfer. I have set up Homegroup on both computers. I am transfering to my ASUS computer(EETOP All In One) has two hard drives on it. One is labeled WIN7 (C) and the other DATA (D) The old computer also runs Windows 7 32 bit. When I attempt to change the Map Drives on the ASUS to the DATA (D) drive and press the "Save" button, I get the error message: "The current drive mapping can't be saved", and below that: "Make sure all drives are mapped and that each drive has enough space for the transfer." I do not understand how to make sure the drives are mapped. I have tried going to "Computer" and then to "Map Network Drive", but there is no "D" drive listed on the dropdown. What must I do to make my file transfer successful?

Try saving the Easy Transfer file in a shared location. One easy way would be to put the file in C:\Users\Public.

Then make sure Public sharing is on.

On the new computer, open up Easy Transfer and tell it you are using your New computer. In the left pane of the next windows, navigate to where the file is stored.

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. ...
