I wouldn't trust using some wizard to decide where my files and important data resided. All you need is an external drive or a flash drive. Copy what you need from the old machine to the drive, then over to the new computer. No one and no software is going to know what's important to you they way you would know.

Greetings. Sorry to say that I never followed thru with the project since after thinking more about it, I didn't have that many files worthy of transferring, so I didn't bother., I found that over time, and downloading information as I went along, the same information eventually showed up on my laptop. Later too, I found that I then had the same information in places, so I just left it there, twice.
