ClickAway tips – transfer files from PC to PC
Don’t leave any data behind when you crack open a brand new laptop. Moving to a new Windows 10 PC is an exciting time. But you might be wondering how to transfer data from PC to PC. Your familiar files and settings can’t be lost! To ease your transition between the old an new PC, here are seven ways you can transfer your data from an old PC to a new PC. ClickAway offers data transfer services if you’d rather have us do it for you.
- Use OneDrive to transfer your data. One of the easiest ways to back up and transfer files from pc to pc is to use the cloud storage service OneDrive. If you have a Microsoft account, you automatically get 5GB of storage for free.
This isn’t a lot of space for a backup, especially if your old PC has been around for a long time, but there are affordable options with much more storage. 100GB of space will cost you about $2 per month, while 1TB of space will cost you about $7 per month and get you a Personal subscription to Office 365.
Transfer files from pc to pc is easy as long as you have an internet connection, and you can enjoy knowing that your data is protected from hard drive failure. The only downside here is that your applications and settings won’t make the trip over to your new PC. ClickAway, however, will make sure your applications and settings are exactly as you want them after we transfer files from pc to pc.
- Use an external hard drive to transfer your data. Using an external hard drive to transfer your data from an old PC to a new PC also gives you a backup of your data in case things go wrong. This mostly manual process might take a bit longer, but if you already have an external drive lying around, you can transfer your files without spending more money. opens in a new windowClickAway offers great prices on new solid state and regular external hard drives.
All you have to do is plug your hard drive into your old PC, move your files and folders from your old PC onto the drive, then plug it into your new PC and reverse the transfer process. Note that using an external hard drive does not let you transfer your Windows settings or applications — this is a method for moving your files and folders only.
- Use a transfer cable to transfer your data. If you don’t want to subscribe to cloud storage services or spend the money on an external hard drive, there is a relatively cheap option that lets you transfer your data between Windows XP all the way up to Windows 10.
This Windows transfer cable from Plugable costs about $40 and uses two USB-A 3.0 male connectors to plug into each PC. Once the PCs are connected, the included software will move you through transferring your files, settings, user accounts, and folders.
- Use PCmover to transfer your data. Back in the days of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Microsoft had a service called Easy Transfer that allowed users to move their files and settings between PCs using either a physical USB transfer cable, a set of DVDs, an external hard drive, or a network.
Unfortunately, Easy Transfer was scrapped in Windows 10, but you’ve not been abandoned completely — Microsoft partnered up with Laplink PCmover to duplicate that functionality, except now it’s no longer free.
This version of PCmover does not allow for full application transfer between PCs. It is compatible with Windows OSes between, and including, Windows XP and Windows 10. Keep in mind that PCmover does not create a backup of your files when they are transferred.
- PCmover Professional. PCmover Professional will cost you more for a single-move license, but if you also want to transfer your applications, you’ll want to go with this option. It works essentially the same as PCmover Express, except you can choose which applications to move and your folders, user profiles, files, and settings. It also has 24/7 assistance in case anything goes wrong.
This works on Windows operating systems between and including Windows XP and Windows 10. Keep in mind that PCmover does not create a backup of your files when they are transferred.
- Use Macrium Reflect to clone your hard drive. Cloning a hard drive allows you to create an exact replica of your old drive on a new drive, whether external or internal. As soon as a clone is created, it should be ready to boot on the new PC.
- Use Nearby sharing instead of HomeGroup. With the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, HomeGroup was retired instead of a new feature called Nearby sharing that uses Bluetooth to transfer files between PCs nearby. It should be enabled by default on your PC, and you can tweak settings to have everything set up exactly how you’d like.
- Use Flip Transfer for quick, free sharing. If you’re looking to quickly and easily transfer up to 50 files (each less than 250MB in size) at a time, Flip Transfer can get the job done for free. Just visit the opens in a new windowFlip Transfer website in your preferred browser, drag and drop some files, then access and download them on a different PC using a unique FLIP-ID.

Keep in mind, some diagnostics take up to 24 hours to finish. We have a high rate of success, but there are some cases where all data may not be recovered.
