    Hi,

    I have just bought a new laptop and would like to transfer all my data and systems settings from my old laptop.

    Specifically all the IE favourites and some random files.

    I use Windows Xp, and i just want to know the easiest way to do this, ie not setting up a network if at all possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    If your old laptop has usb then a pendrive would suffice for backing up and transfer of your old files/ favourites/ email contacts list etc.

    If its just word files and favourites you should be able to do this via floppies, you can use a program such as diskspan to move files that are larger than 1.44mb.

    If you are using Outlook you back up your email and contacts by

    launch the progrtam choose file> Import& export> export to a file and click next. choose personal file (.pst), choose your personal folders entry and check the box to include subfolders. Click browse to select file destination and choose replace duplicates with items exported click next.

    Right for the question asked!:-

    Its very similar, in IE explorer you go file>Import& export......and so on as above.
