Daisy updated on May 21, 2020 to PC Transfer | How-to Articles

"I just get a new laptop and before giving up the old PC, I need to transfer all the files to the new computer. I know I can do it by copy and paste using an external USB drive or hard disk. But the problem is that there are so many large files and folders that I must have to take a long time to manually complete the data transfer job. So, is there any easier way to transfer files from one PC to another? Please help! I'm using Windows 10."

Transfer data files from one PC to another using USB by copy and paste

As we all know, copy and paste is the most common way to transfer files between two PCs. Without using any data transfer software, you just need to connect a sufficiently large USB drive or external hard drive to your old computer, drag-and-drop (or copy-and-paste) all the files you need from your old computer onto the drive, and then disconnect the drive from the old computer, connect it to the new computer, and move the files onto the new computer. It is quite popular among users for free.
