Easy Transfer mapping to the wrong drive
I am trying to migrate data from an XP unit to my new vista unit. I am using
the easy transfer software. My old unit only has a 40 Gig hard drive and the
new unit has a 320 gig drive. When I plug in the cables it searches for the
data and then tells me the new unit may not have enough storage to complete
the transfer. If I click "yes" to continue it eventually shuts down telling
me there is not enough memory. I think it is mapping the data to my "D"
drive which is the "recovery" drive which is almost full and not to my "c"
drive which still has 280 gig of memory left. How do I change the drive it
maps the data to?

RE: Easy Transfer mapping to the wrong drive
I had that same problem Greg and ended up transferring the files by copying
them over my network via Windows Explorer drag and drop. Sure was a lengthy
process so far and still have a way to go.

It seems to me you should have the option to tell it where to copy files to
instead of it automatically dumping them in the virtual D drive.

Anyone in here from the Microsoft Vista team have some great suggestions for
a fix or overcoming this a better way?
