Windows XP EOS: How to transfer your data…

With the end of support for Windows XP reaching its April 8 deadline, Microsoft is helping users migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 8.1 through a free transfer tool.

Partnering with Laplink, Redmond is providing Windows XP users with a free data migration tool called PCmover Express for Windows XP which copies your files and settings from your Windows XP PC to a new device running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

This tool will copy your files, music, videos, email and user profiles and settings from your old PC to your new device, transferring across your home or work network, and even enables Windows XP users to customise exactly what they want to bring over to their new device.

For Windows XP users wanting to transfer applications from their old computer, Laplink is also making available its software that migrates apps called PCmover Professional at a special price – see here for details.
