Data transfer from Windows7 to Windows10

Q: Data transfer from Windows7 to Windows10

Okay let me explain my issue hopefully clearer. My desktop computer used Windows 7. I had Microsoft Office 2007 on it and used Excel for my personal finances. I backed up my entire computer on an external hard drive(WD My Passport). My finances also backed up on a flash drive.My computer crashed. My new desktop uses Windows 10. I have tried to open the flash drive and it comes up stating it cannot read Word 2007. Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Data transfer from Windows7 to Windows10

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Data transfer from Windows7 to Windows10

Hi MELG8, and welcome to TSG.

Are your finance files saved to the flash drive as individual MS-Word and MS-Excel documents?

Are you having problems opening the flash drive to view the list of files saved on it or opening the files that are saved on it?

Did you install MS-Office 2007 or newer on your new computer?

I bought a new tower computer preinstalled with Windows10 to replace one with Windows 7 that is unfixable. I have two other laptops, one vista, one windows xp. I don't want to incur any problems with incompatibility issues. What do I have to do with old computer re windows 7 to then install that windows 7 on the new computer? Can this even be done? If it can, how do I set up a new partition? These are a few of the questions I have.
 

A:Downgrading from Windows10 to Windows7

Having a little trouble understanding exactly what you want to do. Do you want to install Windows 7 on the new computer and use the Product Key that is/was on the defunct computer? If so ...

You can do that if the Windows 7 is Retail. Most times it turns out to be OEM--either preinstalled on a PC from somebody like Acer, Dell, HP, etc., or else OEM System Builder's preinstalled on a custom build. OEM versions cannot be transferred to another computer.

Of course, before proceeding you want to check to make sure that Windows 7 drivers are provided for your new PC.

Hello everyone,

I just bought the Wireless N PCI Adapter (TL-WN851ND) from TP-LINK for my Windows 10 PC. It says that it's compatible for Windows 7/Vista/XP but it doesn't say Windows 10 on there. I thought that since it works on Windows 7, it will probably work on Windows 10 aswell, but since I inserted the card and have it running my computer freezes randomly and gives me a blue screen sometime later. The blue screen also says MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. Sometimes when I turn the PC on it will freeze and go to the blue screen while loading Windows 10.

Is there any possible way to make this adapter compatible for Windows 10 without it freezing all the time which leads to me having to reboot the computer over and over again?

It's sort of a weird problem, really. I have a mac with OS X connected to a vista PC through an ethernet cable. I'm able to access and copy folders with the pc, but when I do, only a small amount of the files are transferred. I'll tell it to copy a folder with several gigabytes, and it will successfully transfer like 100 mb. I need to transfer about 110 gb. I split it into a bunch of different folders, trying to do each one separately, but to no avail. No error message, or any other indication that there is a problem. It's as if vista simply ignores the majority of the files I'm trying to transfer. Any hints as to what might be happening? Thanks in advance <3

So my laptop's motherboard fried, and so I ended up creating a new desktop. I also got a usb enclosure for the old HDD, and managed to get most of the data off- with the exception of anything in my personal user folder- which includes documents, desktop files, and the download folder. Unfortunately, that is pretty much most of what I need/want. I have the old Username/password for my old windows account but I have no idea how to retrieve it, as it keeps denying me access. Any advice on how I should proceed?

You can't install Windows on the same partition as the data without wiping out the data.

But you could do this:

Shrink the partition containing the data if it isn't full.

That would create "unallocated space".

Then make a new partition from that unallocated space.

Then install Windows to the new partition.

Whether it's practical in your case depends on full the drive is. If it's a 500 GB partition, with only 10 GB free, you couldn't shrink it enough to hold Windows.

But if it's a 500 GB partition with only 200 being used, you could shrink by 300, make a 300 GB new partition, and install to it.

But-----fiddling with partitions has some risk to the data. You are best advised to back the data up to some other drive first.

Best tool for the job is probably Partition Wizard.

A:Satellite A660 Windows7 home recovery data needed

The notebook belongs definitely to European series so the only plausible reason why you cannot order the recovery disk is: notebook is too old.
In such case you can install only a clean Windows 7 system. The essential drivers are available on the Toshiba EU driver page and could be installed after the system installation.

A:transfer data

You could buy an external USB enclosure and place your hard drive in there, then connect it to the laptop.
You'll have to match two things: the size and the interface.
Size means 3? inch for desktop drives, 2? for laptop drives.
The interface means SATA (aka Serial ATA) vs. ATA (aka Parallel ATA aka PATA aka IDE aka EIDE).
illustration of what (desktop) SATA vs ATA looks like: http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...4/ata-sata.gif
also be sure it connects via USB (as opposed to eSATA (external SATA))
Here are some examples from newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCateg...nal-Enclosures

If the part about taking the hard drive out is the one you're wondering about, look at the illustrations on this page:
http://www.helpwithpcs.com/upgrading...hard-drive.htm
sometimes the screws are on the side and the drive is fastened to the computer case. sometimes screws hold the drive on mounting brackets, that slide the drive into the computer case like a tray.
and most important of all, always protect yourself from static (the biggest danger to electronics in general). touch the back of the computer case to discharge yourself prior to working. unplug the power cord from the wall. avoid wearing wool. avoid touching the bottom side of the drive with the printed circuits. also be very gentle with the drive. they're very sensitive to shocks (be careful not bumping it against the case, one of the more common pitfalls when putting it in or taking it out).

But is there a way I can simply connect a USB cable between the two PCs & transfer data directly?

2) If this can be done...my only concern is that I utilize ONE Monitor...an LG L227WTG. The analog video input (VGA) on the monitor is connected to the office PC (a Compaq SR5610); & the digital video input (DVI) is connected to the audio PC.

can I toggle this switch while both PCs are up-and-running without blowing up the monitor?

I am trying to help a friend transfer picture/document data from an old Windows 98SE system to their new Windows Vista system. Since USB memory stick drivers weren't available/stable for Win98SE, simply grabbing the data directly from the system was not an option.

I decided to remove the FAT32-formatted EIDE drive from the Win98SE system and drop it into my personal computer (running Windows XP) in an attempt to move the data to one of my NTFS drives. The drive size is roughly 12GB (I'm at work right now so I'm not sitting in front of the equipment). I changed jumpers on the Win98SE disk to cable select, booted the computer, went to disk manager and the disk was recognized, but no drive letter assigned. After right-clicking on the WIn98SE drive, all of the options (including drive letter assignment) were grayed out and the only option was to convert to a dynamic disk. I wanted to keep it a Basic disk, but even an attempt to convert it to Dynamic failed.

I'm not sure why this is happening as I seem to recall that I've easily done similar things in the past (i.e. taken someone's spyware-ridden drive out, moved important data off to one of my drives, then re-formatted it). If I can't figure this out, my next attempt will be to try putting the drive into a USB 2.0 enclosure and interfacing with it that way.

Does anyone have any suggestions or explanations for why the Win98SE drive, FAT32 drive isn't being "nice"... Read more

Make an image of C and the 100MB System partition (if any) and restore that to the new HDD.

And here is a tutorial explaining the transfer of an Operating System. I wrote it for transferring to a SSD, but it is the same for a HDD (less the alignment problem): SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

And regarding the 100MB System partition: If you have one, I recomment to transfer the bootmgr to C (before the move). Then you can forget about the 100MB partition - it is no more needed. Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

And as you said, with the data on D you can deal later.

I currently have two PCs which pass relatively small ammounts of data using their serial ports. I want to replace this with a TCPIP link, but VB seems to make it very difficult....

I could could do it by converting the data to files and sending them over the network, but their must be a better way.
 

A:VB5 Data Transfer IP to IP

A section from the MSDN help on the Winsock control, this basically tells you everything you might want to know about how to do this:

TCP Connection Basics
When creating an application that uses the TCP protocol, you must first decide if your application will be a server or a client. Creating a server means that your application will "listen," on a designated port. When the client makes a connection request, the server can then accept the request and thereby complete the connection. Once the connection is complete, the client and server can freely communicate with each other.

The following steps create a rudimentary server:

To create a TCP server

Create a new Standard EXE project.
Change the name of the default form to frmServer.
Change the caption of the form to "TCP Server."
Draw a Winsock control on the form and change its name to tcpServer.
Add two TextBox controls to the form. Name the first txtSendData, and the second txtOutput.
Add the code below to the form.
Private Sub Form_Load()
' Set the LocalPort property to an integer.
' Then invoke the Listen method.

Can anyone offer suggestions on a good method to transfer apps and data from an old Win XP computer to a brand new Windows 7 computer. I have as yet not worked with Win 7 and realize that cloning drives is not a solutions when changing the OS.
Items of concern in the transfer:
Quicken -- may upgrade to newest version and restore all old data
Word and Word documents
Excel and Excel Workbooks
Internet connection - ComCast cable
Mozy backup
 

A:Data transfer

You can copy files (docs, music, pics, etc.) in a variety of ways such as over the network, external drives, etc., but your actual programs will have to be reinstalled on the new system. If you already have Comcast cable set up, you should not need to install their software. There is a good backup utility for Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird at http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/

welcome

in xp there is a files and transfer wizard. you will have to buy a cable to hook between the 2 computers

start>>all programs>>accessories>>system tools

never used it but believe that is what it is for. know it should work between xp computers and assume you could use it for moving stuff off your old computer too

I have a new pc, and for ONCE, my old one is still working. Both the new and old have XP Pro. I am getting ready to transfer all the old info to the new one. I have never done this before, so please forgive the laughable questions. My old PC has a C drive (with about 5.5GB data out of 8GB) and a D drive (with 18GB data out of 20GB). I bought Detto's IntelliMover with the new PC (200GB).... will I have trouble moving data from two different drives, or is this a pretty straightforward process? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, what is the best way to make sure the old PC is completely clear of old files, since I am giving it to someone else. Thanks SO MUCH for the help!!
