Pc-PC Data Transfer via serial cable

  tallboy 09:53 22 Jul 2007

I need to transfer data files (as backup) from a Win 98 portable PC to a Win XP PC prior to upgrading the portable PC to Win XP.

Does anyone know of a freeware / shareware program that enables you to do this using a serial (RS 232) cable or possibly a USB cable?

All suggestions welcome. Thanks. Tallboy

Thanks for the suggestion martjc. I've just found a UK supplier who offers a USB PC-PC Transfer Cable for £11.75. Click here click here
