I hate to put two pages of info here. So if any one knows how to transfer everything on my C drive to Another PC's C drive and be able to load the PC please send me and email and I'll be glad to send you what I've tried so far and why.

My favorite trick here is to hook up the drive to the other PC.

Often without mounting the drive just laying it carefully in the case sometimes sitting on cardboard. The PC boots up with an extra drive letter and drag and drop or whatever.

Only had a problem with this method once when there where no more letters left and had to combine two letters to free up the letter Z.

have you tried norton ghost? It will copy everything from 1 disc to the other but it will over write everthing on the receiving computer.

It is my impression that with a lan or nic card in each computer you can transfer data from one computer to another using a cat 5 cross-over cable.

Late reply.....
Powerquest has a program called " Drive Image" that is pretty good, too.

Keep in mind that it also deletes all previous data on the target drive.

PC-PC USB cables work great for this. Easier than setting up a network... The drive trick Kevin mentioned is terriffic as well. I use Maxtor software for copying the complete drive, which overwrites anything you have on the drive you are copying to. Larry also gave correct info regaurding a CROSS-OVER cable. Coax networks are slow, and should be terminated at each end. More exoensive than Cat5 set-ups, and antiquated.
