There are many ways. For example, take a use of USB, with the help of firewire, or transfer files between different computers on same network, and so on.

How to Transfer Files from PC to PC?

Once we mentioned transferring files, we can easily figure out that use an external drive like an USB to do it. Maybe it’s a good way to use USB for the small files. However, if the files is large, the small volume USB could be helpless. Or you can use a firewire so that it can deliver data in a high way. But, if the two computers are in different places, how could you do?

While, Windows 7 and Windows 8 has a great powerful tool called Windows Easy Transfer, which can transfer files from PC to PC. Click the Start button, type Windows Easy Transfer to open the program, and do as the prompt. The steps are easy to go.

However, Windows Easy Transfer cannot transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. So, if you want to do that, you can move the files manually, or you can do it with the help of third party software.
