The new: Acer Aspire 5 Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 2GB Graphic ?bit 1.0TB HDD+256SSD

 

The existing: Toshiba Satellite L55-B, 64bit 8GB RAM

I am not too experienced with transferring all the existing data, documents, photos & all of what was existing, to a new laptop or computer.

 

I didn't know if it is the same I saw on a similar topic, where the link here:
 

Of course, the 1st thing I should have done was to find out if the new laptop had 64 bit. It has: 1.0TB HDD+256SSD, and I am not quite sure, but seems it has TWO hard drives??

 

 I am jumping from the old laptop because of a hinge issue that I am afraid will compromise the screen at some point. I wanted to make the switch now before I have to go through more work later. But I will work on fixing the old one as a back up, if something should happen.

 

Anyway as usual, I am glad for the replies & input.

 

Thanks,

mixpix

I am attempting to move my data from the old laptop, but it is a frustrating process. I have to download to an external & then move over to the other new laptop.
What I am finding is that 1) I was looking for the command or shortcut to highlight all the picture files, instead of holding down the shift key & scrolling

2) I notice that there are red circles, with white "X" in the left bottom corners of the pictures & icons.

3) the new laptop does not have a dvd drive so I was hoping that I could run the disk from the old machine to download the 'Microsoft Office Small Business 2007' onto a thumb drive & then upload it to the new one if possible? Or what would you recommend for saving word documents?

 

I know that this was time consuming, to move over in such a manner, but I have the time now.

Thanks for the help

Another question, is OneDrive" essential or is there a way of getting around it. Turns out that OneDrive has prompted me in that my file size is too large.
