@JC_AZ , welcome to the Community.

 

It will be necessary to have some external means to transfer the files.  Here is a guide that should give you some ideas.  You won't be able to transfer the operating system with any method that you use.  There are most likely other options you can find on the Internet.

I used the Carbonite storage to backup and download files/folder/pics to my new computer.  I purchased a new Dell that also has an app to transfer files to a new computer.

 

Thank you for the response
