Easy Transfer RRS feed

  • Question


    Hi, hoping you can answer a question for me.  We have a laptop with Vista loaded, the screen died and it was going to cost more to repair it than to purchase a new computer, so we purchased a new computer also with Vista.  Unfortunately we had not backed up photos from the old computer for quite a while and now want to get them transferred to the new PC.  Can I used Easy Transfer to do this even though the old laptop screen does not work.  I suppose what i need to know is once the computers are conected can I do all the commands from the new PC to complete the transfer? or do I have to pay someone cleverer than myself to do it?? Thanks in advance, Sharelle

  • Hi,

    Your best option would be to take the laptop to your repair center and get the HDD removed and placed into a 2.5" removable case. Make sure they have 2.5" removable cases on their website. Then just plug in all the USB ports into your new computer and the HDD will come up. You then have to try and track your files down.
