Tech Tip – How To Transfer Files From an Old Computer to a New One.

If you’ve bought or are about to buy a new computer here are tips for transferring your old files to your new machine…

Manual Transfer – If you have an external hard drive with enough space you can load your old files onto that from your old computer, attach it to your new computer and then transfer them to the new computer.

Windows (7 or 8) – You can use a program called Windows Easy Transfer, which also works for app and program transfer. N.B. Windows Easy Transfer is not available for Windows 10. You could use Laplink’s ‘PC Mover’ for Windows 10.

Mac or PC – You can use an external hard drive from a USB port, or use FireWire / Thunderbolt ports if you don’t want to use an external drive.
