Take the HDD out of old PC, put in one of the other PC's, then cut and Paste?

It's what i would do.

That looks promising. Will study it.Thanks Dorsai,had thought of that but thought there might be a way without any dismantling.

Fair Play Meshuga. For me, the quickest thing would be to find a screwdriver, but not all want to delve into a PC's inner working, as it does have the risk of doing damage.

Does the other PC also have internet access?

If so you could email the files to yourself off the old PC, then retrieve them on the new..Just a thought.

Dorsai.Now thats a good idea. It does have internet access. Will show it resolved for now. Regards, Meshuga.
