Windows Easy Transfer Improvements
Brandon LeBlanc describes some of the changes and improvements to Windows Easy Transfer that are introduced in Windows 7.
The requirements are still the same. Windows Easy Transfer works.
* Using a Windows Easy Transfer Cable (direct PC-to-PC)
* Over a network
* External hard drive
Customers can now select specific user profiles that they want to transfer from the PC running a previous version of Windows to Windows 7. This can be interesting for families or companies where only part of the user accounts need to be moved to the new operating system. This is for example the case if the kids get the old computer while the parents the new one. The size of each user profile is displayed which becomes useful when selecting the data that should be transferred. It is now possible to exclude data from being transferred.
Windows Easy Transfer Reports are now available at the end of the migration phase detailing everything that happened during the transfer.
