    All my files from my old tower to my new tower.This is just a home computer
  5. not sure what os your old pc has but go to this site http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-easy-transfer
    download the correct software for you old os. this will collect all you old files settings .pst's and Customisations.
    it will ask you how you would like to transfer them i would suggest a thumb drive.
    now take the thumb drive to your new pc and click start > all programs > accessories >system tools > windows easy transfer

    suggestion when you save the file to your thumb drive create a folder and put it in that, every now and then if screws up if it is not in a folder and wants to save or restore the files from floppy disks.
  6. :D
  7. Do you mean just the pictures, music, word docs, etc or Windows and everything?

    Do you have a home router? If so, you connect both systems and share the old hard drive them copy them over.

    If not, you can copy to a portable hard drive then connect to the new PC and copy to there. If you can't afford a portable drive, you can unplug the old drive, plug it into the new system (if the new one has the same connectors), and copy off. OR, you can buy a "USB-to-whatever kind of old drive you have" cable so you don't have to open the new case and risk damaging anything.
  8. not sure of your os you can press the windows key + pause/break at the same time and let go and a window will open that will display the os or click start and type
    msinfo32 into the runbox
  9. Thank you so much.Will try that
