how to transfer files from HP Simplesave portable hard drive to HP Notebook with Win 10

HP Pavilion x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Recently bought the HP Pavilion x360 with Win 10 and would like to transfer files from either my previous notebook (HP Notebook with Vista OS) or from HP Simplesave  external HD which has the files from the VistaOS and also files from another   notebook with XP OS backups- whichever would be easier. Please help.

Hi,

 

This is very simple. Please plug your external HDD to USB port on your new x360 and open File Explorer (old Windows Explorer).

 

The external HDD will turn up as a drive and you can move/copy selected files/folders from your external HDD to your new x360.

 

Regards.

BH

I have used HP Simple Save religiously to back up my PC laptop for a few years now. My PC is crapping out and I'm buying a new one. How do I transfer my contents using HP Simple Save to the new computer?
