Data Transfer – Moving from an old laptop to a new one

Moving your stuff

Whether you are moving from an old PC or laptop, even one that does not start up, transferring the files is not a problem. Your pictures, documents, music and video files along with all your favorites / bookmarks will be moved into their appropriate places in the new computer. Email can be a different matter. How you do your email will dictate how it can be transferred so here are a few examples;

  • If you are logging into Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook online or any other online email provider then you can continue to do the same on a new computer.
  • If you are using Microsoft Outlook as part of the Office suite then everything can be migrated to an up-to-date version.
  • If you are using Windows Live Mail / Windows Mail / Outlook Express then everything can be moved to a new program that will import everything.
  • If you are using Mozilla Thunderbird then this can be fully backed up, exported and imported to a fresh installation of Thunderbird so that everything remains the same.

There are instances where email cannot be migrated but these do not come up often.
