EASY TRANSFER - XP to Win 7

    Question

  • I am going to use Belkin cable to go from old XP PC to new Win 7 PC.
    Will it remove my data from the old CP, or just copy it to the new?
    In other words, will I still have the data on the old CP, or will it have its data cleared off the hard drive?
    [If the latter, it will cause me less concern about private information, if I then give the old computer away]

    Hi tonystef

    If you are concerned about privacy, you can simply format the hard drive or remove the hard drive before giving it away.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for using Windows 7
