Only way to do this is to swap the hard drives. Maybe you'll get lucky, and the drives will be form/fit identical..

I recently bought a new I pad how can I transfer my game from my old I pad I don't want to download the new version and don't want to lose my games or friends


  • If you have your old iPad, back it up with iTunes on your computer.
  • With your new iPad connected to your computer, click the "Restore Backup" in the summary screen of your iPad (on iTunes).
  • You should have your old game data now installed on your new iPad.
  • Update, or buy, a new version of the game on your new iPad

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!
