    Windows Easy Transfer Help

    So as the title says. I upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro, I backed up most of my important stuff from my Windows 7 and used the Windows Easy Transfer. I saved it on my NAS.....Installed Windows 8.1 all well and good. I go into Windows Easy Transfer and try to bring my stuff back, however there was some stuff on my Desktop on Windows 7 and when it says it's completed the transfer however none of my stuff is moved over. Uh what am I doing wrong?

    Windows Easy Transfer really doesn't transfer much, mostly settings. They used to have a supplemental app that would transfer everything else, including apps -- but they got rid of that.

    The info in the link can answer some of the questions about what it moves: Question about what data "Easy Transfer" moves? - Microsoft Community
