Are you just wanting to transfer documents, music, pictures, and other types of files?

Ask Your Own Computer Question

In that case, you can just use an external drive to do that. You can copy the files to the drive from the old computer and then copy from the drive to the new computer. Does that make sense or would you like some help with that?

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
