Try start>all programs>accessories>system tools>file and settings transfer wizard... I'm sure it will work across xp and vista. (with settings in particular as files should probably be ok). but that's where I would start.

I'm trying to sync my files from my old computer


no you can what you have to use is files and setting transfer wizard in windows xp you can start the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard by clicking Start on the computer running Windows XP, pointing to All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then clickingFiles and Settings Transfer Wizard. (If both computers are running XP, you can start with either one.)

Are XP to VISTA transfers doable w/ V 6.2.10.14?


It is not advisable.
Relocator is not 100% guaranteed to even work xp to xp

You are better to use the Vista Easy Transfer utility which operates similar to the XP File and Settings Transfer wizard. That should get your documents email etc.

I have only ever used it a couple of times and was not impressed.
I have also seen quite a few reports of other users having problems too.

That said people do use it and it can work.

I have used the vista transfer tool and been quite impressed even though it can be a little slow on occasion.

Can I use PC Relocator to transfer my programs to external drive?


You can but this software is certainly not the best.

You may find problems with the move.
For XP to XP it may work OK but for variations of XP / VISTA moves I would not recommend it.

Although it takes longer often it works out better to use the files and settings type utilities built onto windows xp or vista.
and properly install any programs you need before you do the transfer.

Also consider that you are more likely to transfer unwanted items with this program. It is not unusual to end up with garbage from your old computer on the new one.

Vista machine doesn't recognize drivers so can't transfer files from old PC to new one (with Vista). Any updates?


what do use to transfer? usb stick or network connection?or cd/dvd-r?
what os does your old machine have?


if both machines have valid and functioning OS(winxx) and both have usb 2.0 port,
and you are transferring just back-up of personal data (doc's, mp3's, save-games etc., use) that amount up to less than 1 GB, try using usb-stick or empty mp3-player for file swapping.

else burn the files from old machine using the hopefully available cd/dvd-burner in it and transfer to newer.

for easily transferring the whole content of old harddisk unaltered,
set up asmall win-home-network using dsl/lan-cable plus crossover adaptor
(wire up both machines to one-another) and stream old harddisk content to new machine

is it laptop to laptop-transfer and you are somewhat familiar with hardware?

remove harddisk from older and put into new one!

by the way: if you can have win xp pro installed on newer machine for same or less price of win vista, try to get it(you do need a bit computer expertise - but we all like learning -don't we?

good luck, if not satisfied or too much options for one time, just comeback to me!

sincerely yours

Transfer data from XP to Vista using DVDs


There might be an issue with the DVDs, I suggest restarting the process with your anti-virus program turned off on both PCs and a new DVD. Make sure you delete the MigWiz folder from the XP machine and re-start the process.
Good luck and re-post if you need anything.

use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard instead of the Belkin software. It's pretty straight forward in the steps for moving files to "new" computer.
