Hi

 

Im trying to transfer files from my Laptop to Home PC....so from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows Vista Home Premium.

 

Is it possible to do this? I cant seem to do it, but it works the other way alright.

 

Thanks

How were you trying to transfer the files? Have you tried the windows 7 easy transfer  application?

Must be referring to share files under a homegroup/workgroup http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/9040/how-to-share-files-and-printers-between-windows-7-and-vista/

do you have a portable hard drive, or a large flash drive you could use to hold the files?

yes and no. Moving from windows 7 to windows vista is considered a "downgrade", and that would not work with the cable. You can move from a windows 7 to another windows 7, or from xp\vista to windows 7 using the cable, but you can not downgrade using that. I also have to ask, why are you going with vista over 7 anyway???

What is the purpose of transferring files vice versa via cable?

That is a Good pint jhayz, I may have misread what tipp-ex actually needs. If all you need to do is move files, there is a number of ways you can do that.

You could use an application like dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/)

you could also try an online backup source like (http://www.carbonite.com/online-backup)

a different free option would be to use a ftp solution like filezilla (https://filezilla-project.org/)

or you simply purchase a portable hard drive, move the needed files on to that, and move them to the other pc.
