    Best way to transfer files between PCs?

    Hi guys, I got the new PC yesterday and I'm trying to figure out a way how to transfer the files, folders I need here on this new PC.

    Any ideas how I can do that as fast as possible and maybe automatically.

    Thanks in advance,
    JokeR

    USB Stick? You can buy cheap 8GB / 16GB USB's at the moment, so I guess that's a pretty easy way

    Ofcourse you can transfer them via cable too, with a switch but that costs more ofcourse (especially if it's only for once, if you would need it more than I would tell you to buy that).

    My mate told me it's also possible to put in your LAN cable or something.. that will go even faster

    But I'm not into that stuff, so I hope someone else can help

    When I got my new pc I was told about a external unit that you can simply remove your old HD and put it into this cradle and use it as an extra or external HD on your new PC if I recall it wasn't expensive was only around $60 might be an alternative so you know you didnt forget anything or loss anything.

    Other then that using your router or just connect the two pcs as a network should work but for me setting up my home network was a pain so an external unit is much easier.

    If all you have is the USB then that would be your best route slow but will work.

    Thanks for your tips. I think I'll connect them in LAN tomorrow. Too tired and frustrated now

    Good Night
