Is there enough empty space on the old 4GB computer - the comp probably
needs empty space to create a file to send over first [ don't ask - that's
the way it's done].
If there isn't enough room the creation process will most likely fail - what
probably happened to you before hand. Try with a small amount of files
first, maybe even one or two docs.  Good idea would be to defrag the old
comp - make it a tad easier on the old dog to do it's work as the files will
be more or less contingent.
Let us know

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?
