Easy Transfer Prob: Changing Old computer to New computer
I successfully transferred files from an old XP computer to a new Vista
computer using easy transfer. Now I am trying to transfer files from an even
older XP computer to the old XP computer I used in the first transfer; i.e.,
that XP computer was the source of the files in the first transfer (the Old
computer), but will be receiving the files in the new transfer, making it now
the New computer. My problem is that when I run E.T. it remembers the
computer as the Old computer, and only offers to transfer files off of it. Is
there some way to change something so that E.T. realizes it is now the New
computer?

Thanks!

I don't think the Vista Easy Transfer will work with 2 XP systems. You will
need to use the XP FAST (File and Settings Transfer) program to do thus. See
the following page for a good set of instructions.

File & Settings Transfer Wizard:
