    Programs transfer

    I am now making the decision to upgrade our last Win 7 pc to Win 8 the reason for waiting was because it has quite a few installed programs. The data is already on the cloud, the programs and the settings for them is the issue, we came across this program but it has pretty low reviews. Feature Overview - Laplink® Software

    just use windows Easy Transfer in Windows 7 & 8. It's part of each and it's free. You'll have to reinstall your programs. Windows Easy Transfer will save your program setting's, contacts,documents, downloads, favorites, music, pictures, searches, saved games and videos. Just save the windows easy transfer to a external hard drive.

    It's better to lose some time reinstalling programs than mess up your Windows 8 system. Some settings are stored in diferent locations in Windows 8.
