Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition English for PC
What sort of problems are you encountering ?
Since newer versions of hardware, computers and operating systems like Microsoft Windows frequently hit the market, most of us are tempted to upgrade our computers. While upgrading your computer or new version of Microsoft Windows, you may find it a hassle to move all the files and settings to the new computer. Transferring files, user settings and applications to a new computer takes days if done manually. There are, however, a few ways of transferring files and settings successfully.
Windows Easy Transfer Wizard Transferring files between computers or operating systems is a long process and some files may not be fully transferred if you lack technical expertise. Windows Easy Transfer Wizard helps simplify the process for transferring files to new computers. It is a built-in migration tool within Windows. This tool provides an interface for such migration and does so with a comprehensive wizard that takes you on a guided tour of the process. It can be accessed by clicking on the "Start" menu, then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "Windows Easy Transfer." All files transferred will be restored in a similar way as they were on your old computer. This method is only useful for solving problems with transferring files, not settings. b> Laplink PCMOVER b> The migration of settings can be more of a problem than that of transferring files. Settings like registry values, user preferences or activation keys are difficult to move without a transfer tool. Laplink's PCMOVER is a tool used for the transfer of files and settings from PC to PC. This software application has a comprehensive wizard that allows you to transfer user settings, personal files and programs with settings. It can be used with any Microsoft Windows-based computer and you can also use it while transferring between operating systems. A PCMOVER will create a backup-type image file that can then be moved by a CD/DVD or USB flash drive. It provides a fast and efficient file and settings transfer. b> Other Transfer Methods b> There are other ways to transfer Windows files and settings to avoid leaving data behind, as well. One is by the means of an Easy Transfer Cable, which is a USB-to-USB bridge cable that connects two computers together. You can also use a USB flash drive, an external hard disk drive or a CD/DVD for transferring files and settings -- though all these means are time consuming. Most users also use a wireless network for migrating files and settings. Software applications are preferred over all these methods, however, because they are cost-effective and they take less time in transferring. b> Solutions for other Transfer Problems b> While transferring files and settings with the help of software applications, other problems may arise. There are solutions for these problems as well. One of the problems commonly faced by users is that some settings may not be transferred. To prevent this problem, you must install that program before you run the Windows Easy Transfer. Another problem faced is some files transferred are unreadable on the new computer. This occurs when a program for that file type has not been installed in the new computer yet. At times, users may see files or settings not being transferred at all. This will occur only when the files are not compatible with that version of Windows. Hope this helps.
