Easiest way to transfer info between 2 PCs?

  ross_mcculloch 12:52 03 Jan 2008

I'm getting a new PC soon and I'm wondering what the easiest way to transfer files, programmes etc between the two machines is? (Its from an XP to Vista machine)

I'm thinking about just using my external HD to transfer it all.

Programs cannot be transfered, you will either need to download them again or have the installation CD available.

I should have added, programs cannot be transfered unless, as I said, or you have the program saved but not installed.
