replacing 2 xp pro machines with 2 new win 7 machines, the person bought the belkin easy transfer cable. normally, I'll just copy all the files from the old machine into a folder called 'fromOldPC' on the new machine. Lots of times there's settings / files in program files, the root of C that people need. And I'll manually drag / drop favorites, my docs, music, PST, etc. very manual process.
this easy transfer was, very easy : )
But it brought over user accounts that hadn't been used for years. and lots of things in username/application data, etc.
Who uses easy transfer vs. manual process? If you use easy transfer, do you think it brings over too much junk but it's easy? Or some other reason?
