Data convey from old to new computer
The ‘best’ way is up to you. Here are three quick-and-easy customs to copy your data from PC to PC:
- backup and restore
- copy and paste to an external hard drive; copy and paste to the new PC
- network transfer
Personally, I used none of the above when I did my clean install of Windows 10, because I accumulation all my personal data on a break free partition. There was nothing to move; I merely ‘took possession’ of the data.
If you’re in the habit making regular backups, the first choice is easiest.
