Transferring data to 2nd pc via usb cable-possible?


Recommended Posts

I want to transfer the contents of `my documents` from my old pc to the newer pc. My doc contains lots of files from typed stuff, photos, videos etc.


I was thinking that I could simply connect both PCs together with a usb cable and simply transfer that way. Would this work and is it ok?

If you just have a few files and both computers connect to the internet then you could use DropBox, Google Drive or OneDrive.


If they aren't connected to the internet but do both have WiFi or a network port you can connect them to each other and share the files. This is a bit tricky but possible by watching YouTube videos.


If either one of them doesn't have WiFi or a network potrt you could use a USB stick or USB hard drive to transfer the files.


Drop me a private message if your stuck. I don't mind popping in with my box of tricks for a cuppa.
