Older Compaq with amd 2.0 ghz processor of my neighbors was running slow then just sort of locked up. She has a lot of unreplaceable data on HD. I'm not sure how to get her data off HD before performing a restore procedure. Any Ideas on PC problem fix would be appreciated as well.

How to download my file from my old computer

The simplest way to transfer files from your old to your new computer is by using USB flash drives. Just save your files from the old computer onto the flash drive then plug this USB drive in to the new computer and save the files there. If you have large files, you can also use an external hard drive to copy and transfer files.

How to transfer your old files to Window 7

Before beginning i recommend performing a full backup so that if anything goes wrong you can roll the system back to working state.

1. You might have a large number of files on your computer that you've either downloaded.The chances are you've also not accessed many of these files in years.
Take time to make an assessment of which files you actively use. In many cases, you'll find that you can free up large amounts of disk space by simply archiving old files. Do this now to clear space and you'll save them later on.

2. Download Microsoft windows easy transfer from Select the correct version depending on whether your old windows installation is XP or Vista, and 32-bit or 64-bit. If your not sure with vista, click start ,type system and click system in the programs list. In XP, click start then Run.Type system.cpl and press Enter. In each case it will tell you if your current version is 32-or 64-bit.

Once downloaded , double click on the easy transfer file and follow the installation wizard.

3. Run windows Easy Transfer from the start menu. The initial screen tells you what it can do. Click Next to continue. The next screen asks which transfer method you want to use. If you're transferring files using and external device, click the bottom option. Click Next again, and you'll be asked which computer you're using, click it.Windows Easy Transfer now builds a list of your files and settings. This process may take several minutes.

4. Easy File Transfer will identify the data it plans to transfer for each user account, and also from shared locations. Review files using the Customise buttons. This displays a sub-window,allowing you to select what you want transferred. If you need to remove files from the list,click advanced.
You can then deselect files by un-ticking the check boxes.

Click next, enter password if required, then click next again to select a transfer destination. The program creates an archive and tells you where it's stored. You can now exit the wizard.

5. Install Window 7 using the disc supplied. When complete, insert your USB drive and open it to display its files. These are stored as a self-extracting archive, so there's no need to install easy files transfer on windows 7.
Double-click the files from old computer. After a few minutes you'll be presented Whit a similar window to the one you saw earlier when you created the archive, but this time you're choosing files to load to a new computer. You can click Customise to omit files, as before.

6. Click Transfer to start loading the files on to the new computer. To prevent file corruptions or access conflicts, Windows 7 deliberately hides the menu bar to prevent you from using the PC until the transfer is complete.

Finally, click on the option to see the files that were transferred. Clicking the Program report tab also lists any third-party applications, such as adobe reader, that windows 7 thinks you'll need to install to access your files.

We are done now wish you luck' and please leave comment and feedback.

Guideliness of how to transfer my files to a new hardrive

The easiest way is to use the Windows Easy transfer. This wizard puts all of the files in the correct places. For example XP uses a different file structure than Vista or 7. Pictures are outside of the documents, now. This allows for faster searching <<search is newer method in Vista and 7, it searches doc names and content, and e-mails...
The migration takes a really long time, so be patient. In essence, start the wizard on the new computer, transfer the files across your network. If you have an older OS, you may need to make a wizard copy to run in the old machine...

Other than that, just follow the directions in the wizard.

I want to transfer my files from pc to mobile via bluetooth

If you want to transfer files from pc to the mobile device. Make sure the pc has a bluetooth turn on. Most of the laptops have a built in bluetooh , but for desktop computers you need to purchase a bluetooth adapter.
Once you have the bluetooh turn ON on your computer. Turn on the bluetooh on your mobile device.

From your computer. Right click on the file that you want to transfer and select send to bluetooth. Click on search for bluetooth device and then select the name of your cellphone ( or name you assigned for the bluetooth on your cellphone)Once you click the name, just go next . You will get a message saying accept bluetooh file on your cellphone, just accept the file and your done.
