  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?
