Hi Pam,
The two computers are not networked as via cable via modem but are connected
by crossover cable which are plugged into the network cards.   Unit 1 is the
unit that is host from the cable modem but I unpluged the cable from the
modem.   But you do raise an interesting point.   I wonder if I can use
Explorer on both computers to see each other via the crossover cable.   I'll
try it tonight when I get home from the office.
Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Carl,
If the network is running properly, and if you only want to transfer 1 file
(but you aren't limited to transferring only 1 file), you can do it from  an
Explorer Window (right click on Start and choose Explorer).

Hi Group,
I am trying to transfer files from computer B (old unit with 4gig) to
computer A (new unit with 60gig) and I am stumped.   I purchased a crossover
cable and connected the 2 computers by Network cards and followed the
instructions under Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Files & Settings
Transfer Wizard and after about an hour, the old computer unit B gives me a
message that it cannot continue because of insufficient space.     The
process on unit B was "Preparing for Transfer" and that is what took an
hour.   How do I transfer just 1 folder?    The error message indicated that
it was "backing up".   Why?
