How to Transfer Files and Change Settings

You have bought new system with Windows7 installed in it. Now you wish to transfer all your data from your old system having earlier version of Windows to new system. You can either chose each and every file to be transferred and make use of external HDD to transfer it or can use Windows Easy Transfer. It is very efficient software that lets you transfer all the data which is selected as per your settings. So there is no need to select each and every file as it is tedious and you might miss important file. You can transfer documents, photos, music, favorite mails and contacts by using this software.

Before the transfer begins, you have to make sure that you are logged in as an administrator. You can not use Easy Transfer if you are not logged in from administrator. After confirming, you have to install Windows Easy Transfer on an old system. This can be downloaded from Microsoft website. This software comes preinstalled in windows 7. Later you have to choose the transfer mode. You can transfer data in three different ways. It can be done by using external HDD or flash drive or you can use special USB cable or you can transfer across the network if both the computers are in same network. Now we will see each method in detail.

To transfer data using HDD, first you have to start Easy Transfer software on both the computers. You have to select the method of transfer which is external HDD in this case. There you will be asked if the computer you are currently using is old or new. You have to choose ‘new’ for the computer in which data is to be transferred and then proceed as per instructions. Now go to old computer and there select option ‘old’ after attaching external HDD or flash drive. The software will scan your system or all the possible types of files that can be transferred. You can even customize your selection after the process is completed. Password can be set for security purpose if you wish to. Select the HDD to save the file and you are done with old system. Now attach the HHD to new system and select previously stored file to start the transfer. You can view transferred files later.

Depending on method of transfer you chose, procedure changes slightly. To transfer the files using USB cable you have to follow the same procedure as stated above. Only instead of choosing HDD, you have to select option indicating Easy Transfer Cable. By selecting old or new computer and ensuring that both the computers are properly connected by cable, process can begin.  In this option also, you can check transferred data later. Network transfer also works in same fashion. However, Windows Transfer can not transfer files from 64-Bit version to 32-bit version. If you are willing to transfer data from 64-bit Vista to 32-Bit Windows7, then you can use manual method of ‘copy and paste’ to perform operation. You can even use backup files for the same purpose. Use of Easy Transfer software is the easiest and most reliable way for transferring data.

Lenovo Launches New Mutli-Touch Tablet The IdeaPad S10-3T

Lenovo has always managed to keep the average users interest hooked up on to their IdeaPad series while they let the ThinkPad series service the business class. Their latest release, the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3T Multi Touch tablet/Netbook, aims for the average ‘fun’ user rather than serious business class netbook users.

The S10-3T is one of the first netbooks to feature the new version of the Atom processor. The OS has been updated Windows 7 from the older XP which the series previously offered. The USP of this machine though is its ability to swivel the screen totally and fold it thus becoming Lenovo’s own iPad. Ok that may seem too far but nevertheless it does seem like a complete tablet. Here is a spec sheet which will give you an idea of the machine’s capabilities:

• Intel Atom N470 @ 1.83GHz, 667MHz FSB, 512KB cache
• 10.1” LCD, 1024×600 LED Backlight
• Intel GMA 3150 Integrated Graphics
• 250GB Seagate Momentus 5400.6 HD
• 802.11b/g/n Wi-fi
• 1.3 MP Webcam

For a full spec sheet you can head to the company’s website. The IdeaPad comes with a price tag of 649$ which is pretty high for the netbook standard. The question is, is the machine worth the hefty price even if it is a tablet netbook combo? We decided to go delve further into the machine’s capabilities.

The design is cool and funky. Lenovo has done a reasonably good job in spicing up the netbook while not going overboard. With a resolution of 1024×600 the netbook is very wide for its height. The build quality is average. The ports on the laptop include 2 USB, a memory card slot, an optional TV output and a VGA output. There is also an Ethernet jack and a wireless on/off switch. The inside of the netbook though doesn’t reflect the exterior designing. Once opened a bright white keyboard shows up with a ultra small size trackpad. The trackpad is the type found in the newer MacBook Pro with no button but you have to mash the corners to click. It also doesn’t support multi touch. This new idea though unique is not very user friendly. Drag and drop is almost an impossible task in this trackpad. The screen sports a gloss finish rather than a matte finish as we would have expected. The screen reflects a whole lot and is almost washed out outdoors.

Lenovo has done a commendable job with the touch interface. The touch is very responsive and the integrated accelerometer orients the screen in any direction you want. The IdeaPad ships with Windows 7 Home Premium and a host of other bloatware. It would have been much better had Lenovo thrown in a DVD instead of forcing the software upon us.

The new Atom processor and 2GB of Ram coupled with Windows 7 should have meant better performance but it just doesn’t seem so. Even simple operations took a whole lot of time. In fact the iPhone is quicker when it comes to switching the screen orientation. The screen responds beautifully to touch inputs but again Lenovo has not included a stylus which would have optimised the tablet experience.

On the whole the machine doesn’t live up to its 600$+ price mark. The iPad cannot handle Flash videos because of the lack of Flash support but neither can the S10-3t thanks to the lacklustre performance. The battery too has let us down giving about 2.5 to 3 hours of juice and that is without using the touch screen. The concept of the tablet netbook concept is amazing but Lenovo just didn’t provide adequate support to the idea.
