    From Windows XP Pro SP2 to Windows XP Pro (no service packs or updates)
    I transferred to my docs on old pc(windows with sp2).
    Pulled that across the network to another pc. It was a mapped drive.
    Went to new pc pulled (no updates) down off network into my docs.
    Drive mapped on this pc also.(peer to peer network).

    2 files that I'm copying over. (Guy is brand new hardly any info on his old pc.)
    In my dos on new pc same files and same folder still there.
    When I come to bring in the old settings, I point to that folder and it has no recognizable files.

    I Cannot load settings on his new pc. Updated his new pc to sp2.
    Haven't tried to transfer again yet. Will try Monday.
    Just posting to see if there is anything else I might look at. If it still does not let me transfer, Was thinking of transferring by floppy to avoid the network. Haven't looked at anything else yet.
