USB to USB Vista Easy Transfer Cable
One of the most challenging experiences users have after purchasing a new computer is transferring their personal files, email, data files, media, and settings from their old computer to the new machine. This process can be so complex, time consuming, and daunting that people frequently request help from friends or relatives, and some never succeed in getting all their important data onto the new computer.
Microsoft Windows Vista significantly simplifies this important process and makes transferring personal data easy and intuitive for mainstream computer users.
