I recently transferred my Docs/Pics/Music by copying each folder to DVD(RW), worked effortlessly. I bought new laptop to replace ancient Desktop.

Many ways of copying your files across,you could use a caddy for the old hard-drive then transfer the stuff you want across to the laptop. Format the old hard-drive and use it as a back up. Any software will need to be downloaded and then installed on the laptop.

I just use the built-in Windows Easy Transfer (need to download a free prog from MS if the old computer is XP). But, as Chronus says, this is only for personal data and not for programmes.

Don't forget your bookmarks/favourites and cookies - and your emails...
