Can you recommend a check list I could use before switching from my old computer to my new one ?
Like all of you, I too, had to switch computer many times. I can't recall a single time where I didn't find myself, after a month or so, saying "oops I forgot to copy this from the old computer". It could be my favorites, my custom settings in Photoshop or some other thing I overlooked.
So What's your check list?
Hi, I have done the same as you. Forgotten something and ended up saying oops or something worst when I found out I didn't copy an important file. Anyhow, I will be getting a new computer too within the coming months and your question causes one to think about what one wants to carry over from the old to the new. So, I looked online for a checklist, because one is definitely needed, and I found something that will work for me when I do purchase and perhaps it will benefit you too:
The Microsoft® Windows® XP operating system provides a Files and Settings Transfer wizard to move data from the source computer to the new computer. You can move data such as:
You can transfer the data to the new computer over a network or serial connection, or you can store it on a removable medium, such as a writable CD or floppy disk.
To prepare the new computer for the file transfer:
To copy data from the old computer:
After the information has been copied, the Completing the Collection Phase screen appears.
To transfer data to the new computer:
The wizard reads the collected files and settings and applies them to your new computer.
When all of the settings and files have been applied, the Finished screen appears.
Click Finished and restart the new computer.Trademarks that appear in this module: Microsoft®, Windows®, Dell™
