I have a new windows 8 Toshiba computer. I wish to transfer my Passport T1 “backed up” files from my old Lenovo Windows 7. I don’t find any specific instructions for this procedure. Are there any specific instructions?Are there any issues? or problems? I would like to know in advance so I don’t create problems. ( I certainly have had problems in the past which I hope will magically disappear when I start using the new computer)
How did you backup the files?
Sorry, I have files on a Passport drive.
Did you back them up with software like Smartware or just copy them? If you used software you may have to use that to restore the files.
I used the software. I believe I can just attach the device to the new computer and retrieve. Is that what you understand? I was wondering if I was going to have a problem going from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
You may have to install the software you used for backup. If you used Smartware this might help http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-for-PC/data-restore/m-p/161586/highlight/true#M5703 see post 2
