Transfer Your Files and Settings – Migration and Deployment (Part 4 of 19)

Dan says, "Try out the Micrososft Virtual Academy!"

In part 2 and part 3 of our blog series, “Migration and Deployment”, we discussed and showed you how to use various tools to install a new instance of Windows 8 on new hardware.  But that doesn’t take into account what most people will want to do: Migrate their files and their configuration preferences over from the old to to the new installation. 

In part 4 today, my friend Dan Stolts covers that very topic, and shows you how to use the Easy Transfer Wizard. 


What do you use to upgrade users? I’m sure you automate when there are more than a few people to migrate… and such a tool will be the topic of tomorrow’s article, too!
