I used easy transfer to try and move some files from my old computer with XP to a new HP laptop with Windows 8. I did not see or missed the report showing the files that would be moved and which ones I wanted to move and because of this transferred a lot more files then I wanted. Can i reverse this transfer or do I have to find all the files and delete them or would taking my computer back to a point before I used easy transfer do it. Thanks for any help

There's no way to "reverse" the process. You will need to manually delete the files you no longer want.

Normally, if you scroll to the bottom of the list where it shows which folders will be copied (user1, user1, shared/public, etc...), you should see a "Custom" option, and selecting that will bring up an Explorer window where you can check/uncheck which folders will be copied and deselect the ones you don't want to copy.

I am trying to figure out how or if I can download a document from my laptop (Windows 8) to a USB memory stick so I can moved it to my PC(Windows XP) and then print it as my printer is hooked to my PC. Also can I move files from my PC using a memory stick to my laptop without using the Easy transfer. Thanks for any help, Newsey

Go to the "Desktop" of the laptop, and open Windows Explorer and use the "Click and Drag" to the thumb drive.

To get to the "Desktop" click in the upper left corner of the screen.

I can get to desk top and click on file explorer and find the document I want but do not see how you click and drag to thumb drive. Newsey

I've merged both of your threads together as they are related. Please do not start more than one thread for the same type of issue but rather keep replying in this thread until the matter is resolved. :)

You should also be able to Right Click on the File and Select the Send To Context Menu. Your USB drive should be an option in the context menu.
