That depends on how much is the size of files to be copied. in fact you dont need a CD to do it if you have an external hdisk enclosure that you can put the hdisk of the old PC. just place it in the enclosure with the proper cabling and then attach to the pc where you wanted to copy the files.

How can I transfer data from a tower that has been replaced by a new computer?


There are several ways. I'll offer you some options:
1. Connect the old and new with a special network cable and copy it over.
2. Save the data off the old one on a thumb drive. Copy the data off the thumb drive onto the new system.
3. Pull the hard drive from the old system and mount it in the new one, and copy the data over.
Any of these will work....

Transfer info from this computer to my new comp. things like Pictures Music.


Copy all your data from the old computer onto a blank CD, blank DVD, or onto a USB flash drive, or external hard drive. Then copy it to the new computer.

When both computers are in the same location, you can use an Ethernet cable to transfer information between machines. If you don’t have a hub, router, or switch, look for a crossover cable to complete the process.

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC


Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

We are trying to load data files from old computer system to new. Had Passport hooked up to old computer for two weeks.How do we get the files off Passport and onto the new system?


Hi,
Use the passport to transfer the files, but DO NOT USE THE Passport SYNCHRONIZING software. The Passport will keep a snapshot of the old computer and when hooked up to the new one it will compare it to the snapshot it has stored and, not recognizing it, will ask you to reinitialize the profile, erasing everything in the process. ( At least that is what happened to me everytime I changed something in my computer: new partition or some other thing)

The pedestrian procedure
  1. Hook up the Passport to the old computer.
  2. Copy the data from the old computer and paste it onto the Passport, preferably in a folder. (Drag and drop, Copy Paste)
  3. Safely remove the Passport and hook it up to the new computer.
  4. Open the Windows explorer, travel to the Passport, locate the data folder you created before.
  5. Point to it with the mouse cursor, right-click and select Copy.
  6. Go to the new computer hard drive and paste the data folder on c: or some other folder.
Hope it helps.

Need to know how to transfer programs and files from old to new PC


There are three sets of items that you need to transfer.
It would be best to use an external USB drive and keep the data on the drive as a backup.

1. Settings (Internet favorites, desktop settings, cookies, address book, etc.)
2. Data (My Documents, and multimedia content)
3. Programs

It would be easy if the old computer was also a Dell; however, you can't simply "copy" to the new computer.

#1. Settings: There is a built-in utility called "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard". [Start] [All Programs] [Accessories] [System Tools] [Files and Settings Transfer Wizard]

#2. The transfer wizard has an option to copy "settings only", "Data Only", Settings and Data". Transfer only the settings and then transfer the data. It will go much smoother.

#3. Some programs are already on your new computer; however, unless the old computer was also a Dell, you will have to re-install most or all of your programs like MS Office, Printers, Scanners, Camera and Video applications, etc.

If you need more detail, please post a comment... Thanks .

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
