Works Great - W7 to W7
on August 28, 2011
At first, I wasn't sure if this cable would work for me because I had read somewhere that it only worked for Windows 7 32-bits to Windows 7 32-bits. I recently purchased a new laptop that comes with Windows 7 64-bits and I needed to transfer my files from my previous Windows 7 32-bits laptop. Anyway, I found this cable here on Amazon and the description stated that it was compatible for the transfer I needed. I figure, if it doesn't work I'll just return it.
I ordered it with the Local Express Delivery and received my cable with perfect timing. This cable is extremely easy to use with "Windows Easy Transfer". If you have Windows 7 you won't need to install the software. If you have XP or Vista, you can simply pop in the CD that comes with the cable and follow the instructions. I started Windows Easy Transfer on both computers and selected the option of "Use Easy Transfer Cable". You may use DVDs/CDs too, but that would have taken me tons of discs I would've thrown away afterwards. I plugged in the cable, waited a few seconds for my two laptops to recognize the device then proceeded with the transfer.
The process took a while (maybe about an hour) since I had a considerable amount of files. I transfers everything such as your Documents, Music, Videos, Pictures and basic User Account information. Any programs you have you will have to re-install.
This cable works great and I'm extremely happy that I bought it. I'm in my new laptop and it's a relief that every time I look for a file, I have right here with me!
