    Windows Easy Transfer win 8.1 to a win 8.1 machine


    I have been trying to figure out and follow the instructions that the new transfer program gives and I cannot figure out what they are saying. Apparently it is not as simple as they had before.

    Instructions would be appreciated..............

    Forget I asked!!! Seems that Windows Easy Transfer is dead! It has been scratched from 8.1, but still show as an app. Trying to push everything to SkyDrive.

    Win 8.1 pro / win 8.1


    Some years ago I bought an easysuite transfer cable to move files between my desktop running xp and a tablet running Windows 7. When I had to replace both with an hp desktop and Surface pro both running Windows 8.1, I needed to transfer a large number of files between the two so I gave the easysuite cable and try and it works. I don't know if they are still available, but it would be worth it to see if they are. There is no software to install it's all inside the cable.
