Hi All

 

This is for my son who has a windows 7 laptop which is full of pics and i have advised him

to backup all his pics and his files before its too late, however at this moment in time cost is

an important factor.

He does have an unused windows 2000 machine which i have removed most of the files etc

and its pretty clean as far as i know.

Is it possible for me to transfer all the pics and files to Windows 2000 from the windows 7 lappy

and use it as an external storage facility and if so how is the best way to do it.

 

Thanks all

 

Best regards

Hi Allan

 

Thanks for that.

 

Because of the quantity of pics he has what do you suggest is the best way?

To copy them to Flash drive then transfer, clean Flashdrive and repeat will take forever.

 

Any advice greatly appreciated

You can use a cd or dvd, connect the two systems directly, or if they are on the same network transfer via LAN. Here is a link that will explain some methods: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-ways-to-transfer-files-from-one-computer-to-another/
