Hi Pam,
Hi Dave,

I'll try both ways;  the crossover cable via Explorer will be first.   :-)

  I agree with you Pam, didn't mean to imply otherwise, I just find sometimes 
it is easier to provide a document that leads them through the steps and its 
faster. :>) Dave

  I had 2 boxes connected with a crossover for the longest time before I got a 
switch to hook up 4 machines.  That's how I viewed/transferred/opened files on 
the other machine.  As long as the network connection between the 2 machines is 
working then you should be able to do as I suggested.  


    See attached. I have not checked the links lately,  Dave

    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?
