With the end of Windows XP support quickly approaching, Microsoft has released PCmover, software that helps you transfer your files and settings from a computer running Windows XP, to a new computer running Windows 7 or 8. In the video below, we’ll give you a quick overview of the process so that your move from XP to Windows 7 or 8 is as smooth as possible.
While PCmover helps you transfer files, folders, user accounts and other personal data from one PC to another, it doesn’t help you transfer applications or existing programs. If you want to transfer programs too, you can use PCmover Professional, a paid-version which helps you transfer software and applications.
