Restoring files to new computer

There sits our brand-new calculating companion we successfully set up last week. We answered the initial setup questions and it finally displayed a beautiful, if empty desktop. What’s next? Moving files from the old PC to the new one would be appropriate now. There are multiple processes available to accomplish this task.

For those heeding my entreaties over the years to back up files to an online cloud system such as Carbonite (http://partners.carbonite.com/bitsbytes-chipscomputerservices) the process is simple. Surf over to our cloud-based backup provider, log onto the site, click on “recover files” and follow the steps. This will install Carbonite on the new computer and then restore all backed-up files to where they were on the old computer. Depending on how large the backup is, it can take a long time. However this won’t prevent us from continuing with other tasks such as loading programs on the new computer.
