Looking back at my old posts and seeing what I was able to do, it seems that the older I get, the less I know what I'm doing.

Pretty sure my 9 yr old Dell E510 running XP will be dying soon. We have a newer laptop and desktop both running Windows 10. I used to save everything on the old pc by saving files to CD-R's but now I have tons of disks and still more files that have never been saved.

Basically I want to just transfer everything on the old pc to the new one as efficiently as possible. I took a look at the macrium free option but not sure it's what I need. The disk drive hasn't worked in yrs so I use an Iomega Hotburn Pro to open and save to discs.

Also, we only have microsoft office on the old pc so if I can transfer that to the new, that would be great. It's the old non subscription version. My kids use google drive for school and my husband can use word through his work interface but we would still need word to access old resumes and such.

Apparently once upon a time, I was able to open the old pc up, replace the fan and power supply, upgrade my memory, etc... Now anything more than press the button to turn it on is a challenge (n)
