i really liked the "windows easy transfer" program in windows 7, is there anything similar to this with windows 10?

 

i have an older laptop that i upgraded to windows 10,

 

i recently purchased a new laptop with windows 10,

 

whats the easiest way to transfer everything?

 

backup and restore?....or just drag and drop using external hard drive?

 

easy transfer was just so......well easy

Here is the official Microsoft Answer

 

Here is a link from Microsoft with a discounted price.

 

Or, you can drag and drop using an external drive adapter.  Most of the files you want will be in C:\Users\USERNAME, where USERNAME is the name of the Windows user account you were using.  You will probably need to take ownership of the drive to access the data.

thanks,

 

so the way i take this is.....instead of providing the easy transfer program in windows 10 for free, i basically have to purchase it now....nice

Correct mikey11! Good ole' microsoft.

 

Simplest method would be to just copy it manually with a hard drive. I was in almost this same situation as you, and that was the only solution. Manual copy.
