Transferring Data From An Old Device

Everyone has had a computer break, or decided to upgrade when the old one starts showing signs of its age. Let’s face it, when it comes time to transition to a new computer, transferring your data from one computer to another can be a real hassle, especially when the older machine is no longer working correctly.

Here at resquoo, we offer services for customers in these predicaments so that there’s no need to research the specifics. Don’t worry about learning the difference between SATA, USB, FireWire or Thunderbolt connections, we can instead have you up and running again in no time at all.

That being said, not all cases require a trip to us – if you’re technically capable and have the parts needed, data transfers can take place right at home. In a recent article written by Donna Tapellini on Yahoo! Finance, she details the steps needed to transfer files to a new computer, and how to properly use the old hard drive when complete to prevent someone else from seeing your data.

As a disclaimer, we urge you to take caution when trying this at home – it’s too easy and common for someone to accidentally erase everything during this process. While we can still attempt to recover the erased data, why not avoid the possibility if you’re uncertain?
