Hi Carl, It sounds like you need to pick fewer files to transfer at a time to me. I only tried the transfer wizard once and I didn't limit the files it tried to transfer, until the second try. :O) And the answer should be yes, but you need to set up the direct cable network, and get it going, before you try the windows explorer.

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.

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?
