Question about Computers & Internet
I have files and programs on OS Windows 95. I would like to keep these files and programs by moving them to another computer that runs OS Windows 2000 Professional. Can I do this and how?
Hi, yes you can. Just take off your harddisk containing the files ans programs you have mentioned from your CPU unit and transfer it to another computer. You must set your harddisk as Slave. There's a jumper setting labeled in your harddisk just follow where the jumper is set as slave in your harddisk.
*Drop me a comment when you are done and if the other computer recognizes your harddisk drive or not. I'll be waiting. I am here to help you.

Files are pretty easy to transfer, and there are a few ways to do it. You can some kind of removable storage device such as an external hard drive or a thumb drive. You can also set up a network between the computers, which can be done using the network setup wizard, which can be found in the control panel.
Transferring programs is the hard part. If you don't have very many programs, you might just want to reinstall them on the new computer if you have the installation discs or files. If you have a lot of programs with settings that you would like to keep, you may want to purchase a transferring program like PCmover, which will transfer files, programs, and settings between two computers.
Another option is to use a disk imaging program, which creates an exact copy of your entire hard drive which can be moved onto another computer. There are many programs you can use to do this, some of which cost money, whereas some can be downloaded for free. You can find a list of free programs here: http://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/backupandimage.shtml
The disk imaging option is definitely more difficult than a straight transfer though, since it just copies them to a file rather than actually installing them on the new computer. This option is mainly useful if you want to keep programs that you do not have installation discs or files for.
