Lily123, if all you're wanting to do is copy DATA folders and files from the old computer to the new computer, there might be a couple of simpler ways. If on the old computer you know where the data folders and files are, and on the new computer you know where you want the data folders and files to be -- there are a couple EZ ways. I have copied and moved many data folders and files amongst my three computers over here. Mostly via ethernet/wireless folder/file sharing.
Windows Easy Transfer is very easy to use (I will note that it is not as nice as the Mac OS X's Migration Assistant...MA can also transfer programs/applications
...sorry for the "shameless Mac plug"). It finds everything for you...including if it is in "non-standard" areas if my memory serves me correct. No need to know where stuff is located, unless there are things you want to exclude.
I kind of lost track, what connects your two computers? Ethernet? Wireless? usb to usb cable?
The original poster has not say what, if any, network connections there present.
Plus, I will note that file sharing can sometimes be a pain to setup on Windows computers running different versions of Windows due to Windows Networking. This is partially due to Microsoft changing the default Windows Workgroup from Windows version to version in some of the recent upgrades. It has been a while since I messed with Windows Networking as I now make use of a NAS that can act as an "intermediary" for transferring files from one computer to another...or just have the files stored on to begin with, so it may have gotten better with recent versions of Windows. I do know that I had some fits trying to get sharing setup between a Windows XP and Windows 7 computer at one point.
