Windows® Easy Transfer for Windows® 2000
Role of Windows Easy Transfer in Windows 2000-based system? What are the related issues?
When you shift from an old computer to a new one, then transferring files from old to the new one becomes a tedious task. Usual method of transfer is through CDs, or through USBs. Even while using these, you can transfer only personal data like documents, files, pictures and so on. However, you cannot transfer files and configurations supporting the programs. As a result you will have to reconfigure these configurations on your system. However, now it has all become easy. You can easily transfer files from Windows 2000 using the Windows Easy Transfer software. This software plays an important role in transferring information from the old system to new one without making the process tedious and hectic.
Following paragraphs provide information on issues and solutions for problems with Windows Easy Transfer:
- Transferred programs not appearing on the list
- Stops during transfer
- Unable to map drives
Transferred programs not appearing on the list
Sometimes you may come across the issue that the transferred programs are not displayed on the list. It occurs because the Windows Easy Transfer transfers only the files supporting the program, not the program itself. Thus you need to install the base program on a new system after transferring the supporting files on it.
Stops during transfer
In few of the cases, Windows Easy Transfer may stop the transfer because the connections between the computers might be lost or the connection to the network folder where the files are stored might be lost. To fix the issue, you need to check the connections and start the transfer again. Windows Easy Transfer will start the transfer from the files from where it has stopped during connection failure.
Sometimes the drives on your old computer do not map to the drives on your new computer. It happens when the drive names are not the same for both the systems. This issue may not occur if mapping is done between C: and D: drives of the system respectively. If the new system has only C: drive then 'Drive Redirection' is the only option to transfer files from other drives of the old system to the C: drive of new system. You can also restrict the access to specific portions of the drive with the use of the 'Drive Redirection' portion.
