I am a Systems Tech for a small company and we just received a new computer for the Shipping department. There are about 7 users that I need to migrate over to this computer (Personal documents, email, Browser favorites etc...) and I thought it would be efficient to use the Files and Settings transfer wizard to do so.

The old computer is a Windows 2000 and the new computer is XP. I start the process on the new computer and it prompts me to make a Floppy with the Files and Settings transfer wizard for Win 2000, which I do. I do the normal steps that it prompts me for:

I insert the floppy in the old machine and run it

As a test I select just one Word document in a user's My Documents file to see if it transfers and delete everything else

I delete all other file types except the ".doc" type

I start the transfer and enter in the password that is generated on the new machine

After a short time, it is done, however, the file has not transfered.

Am I using this utility correctly? I have been following the tutorials that I have read and I do not see my error. Can I use this utility for migrating multiple users to a new machine?
