XP to Windows 7 File Transfer

November 9th, 2009

Since the official market release of Microsoft Windows 7, a large amount of users have actually decided to try this new operating system. However, as any new platform, Windows 7 has its complications as well, even if they seem to be less problematic then other comparable Windows releases. One of the main problems when deciding to migrate to Windows 7, especially if you have just purchased a new computer alongside this operating system, is the file transfer between your old setup and Windows 7.

In most cases users want to transfer programs and custom settings and files over to the Windows 7 operating system or new computer.  To do this you have two options.  However only one of them will be able to transfer over programs.

In order to ensure proper XP to Windows 7 file transfer, one of the most common utilities that has proven a lot of success and respect from software review magazines is Laplink PCMOVER. This software is designed to scan, detect and help users in the migration process of files, data and settings from any actual PC to a new PC.  Overall this software program is very easy to use.  You install the program on both machines and then follow the on screens prompts.  You can use the data transfer cable method, do it over a network or even a delayed transfer to an external device.  This is the only program on the market that can transfer over programs so you don’t really have a chose if that is what you need to do.

A free method that is well worth mentioning is the Easy Transfer Wizard that is installed on both XP and Vista and Windows 7 computers.  The Wizard has a nice interface that allows you to transfer over all your user and custom settings as well as personal files.  The down side to this program is it will not be able to transfer over programs and does not always seem to work right.  It is not uncommon to have to two the transfer a few times to get everything you want.  The transfer can take a day or two as well for some reason when done over the network you need to make sure none of the computer go to sleep or offline.  Before you do the transfer you will need to pre-install any software programs onto the Windows 7 computer.  This is only needed if you want to transfer over custom settings from programs that you plan on using.  Outlook and Quickbooks would be good examples of this.

For my time and money I would recommend just using the Laplink PCmover program.  It’s easier and tends to do a great job transferring over data from XP to Windows 7.

Windows 7 set for Oct 22 launch

July 23rd, 2009

It is rather rare when Microsoft sets a target launch date and then meets it.  Just today Microsoft has officially anounced that it will meet the Oct 22 dead line and launch Windows 7.  The code and final version have been set and they are now ready to start producing compies of the operating system.

Office 2009 also seems to be going smooth and so far they are expected to make the target launch date on this as well.

For Windows 7 users can expect much of the same features as in Windows Vista but they have improved the overall stability of the system and have mde it a little more user friendly.  All in all after demoing the product I can say I am pleased with the new design and layout.

The thing that made Vista fall flat was not all Microsofts fault.  In fact as a the owner of a computer repair and consullting company I found most issues my users had were related mostly on the other software vendors.  They did not have enough time to re-engineer their software to work on both a Vista operating system and a 64 bit OS.

I feel both of these reasons were largly to blame for the heat that Vista took.  Now that 64 bit computing has gone more main stream and companies all over have had the apropriate time to make the needed software changes, I feel the Windows 7  will be widely accepeted by many out there.
