Easy File Transfer

HP Recommended
Pavilion p6710f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When seting up new PC i.e HP and using easy file transfer software to transfer from Dell computer will all the files be transfered i.e Dell manual, utility, bitmap ect? I just noticed that I have a folder on my c:drive for Dell with all of these files in it and was wanting to know if I could delete it?

@s84

 

A folder called Dell on a Dell machine normally contains Dell software, drivers and a sub-folder called UpdatePackage. I don't know what more did you put on it but it is useless for HP machine and you can delete it.

 

I don't know why you transfered all files from Dell machine to HP machine. Some files may cause confilct and won't work.

 

Regards.

@banhien,

He got ya !!!!

The HP p67xx series is an older circa 2010 model WIN 7 based computer.

An upgrade to WIN 10 does not allow the commonly called "Windows Easy Transfer".  What is the exact name of this program you are actually asking about.

 

You could use the program and cabling mentioned in the above link.  What you can move are data files found in the Documents, Pictures, Downloads, Music, VIdeo folders.  What you create you can copy.  Program files are more difficult, and require extensive features.
