I have bought a new laptop and now I want to transfer data from PC to laptop. So, I need to know how I can swap information between the PC and laptop preferably without losing data. Please suggest me something in this regard.

Well, it is highly significant to be aware of the involved operating systems, speed of processors and whether these both have USB Ports or Network Interface Cards etc. Another important thing is the amount of information that is needed to be transferred. Don't forget that most of the software systems will require to be re-installed on your new laptop if you need to use them again. Anyhow if you have to transfer only a small number of documents or pictures, you can transfer it simply by using a CD writer or floppy drive.

However, another way of transferring the hard drive data is to store the information on some virtual or online data storage system and then re-access it after your new computer is installed properly.

Alternatively; if you want to transfer a large number of files and folders, then you need to establish a temporary network between the two computers and this will allow the easy and quick data transfer. Some of the ways that can be used to make network connections are listed below.

  • USB LinQ Link Cable Networking.
  • Direct Connection with a "Laplink" Cable
  • USB Cable Networking

If network cards are already installed on both of the computers then buy a CAT- 5 cross over cable and connect the two PCs via Network Interface Cards.

I wanted to extend my ultimate gratitude and thanks to you and your team. Not only did your company recover the data quickly and at half the price of other companies, everything was recovered and our office is back on track after the NAS failure. I really appreciate a company doing its business so well as Disk Doctors did; and will definitely sing your praises for all to hear. Excellent customer service all around. Thank you again!

Many special thanks for your support in getting my drive issues handled. I am able to access all the files that were recovered. You guys are great!

I thought I was missing a folder until I realized I was searching under the wrong folder name.
I am happy! We are good and all is well!

Thank you.

What do you do when a power surge destroys your hard drive and you loose hundreds of hours of work, irreplaceable images, and your ability to complete jobs for clients with looming deadlines?  My first instinct was to cry, then scream.  My IT manager tried and failed to recover my data and recommended that I try a disaster recovery service. We went on line and called several companies, and when we reached the Disk Doctors, we knew we had found a company that could help us.  I delivered my toasted hard drive to their Vancouver location late in the afternoon and by 6:30 am the following morning a representative had emailed me with a reassuring message and time line for the work.  The following Friday I received one of the happiest calls of my life. My data had been completely recovered.  I cried and screamed again, this time with joy!  Over the last two days I have been thrilled, delighted, relieved, overjoyed and reassured by the fact that ALL MY DATA is once again accessible. Disk Doctors are now on my top-persons list and I am telling all of my colleagues about their services!!!

Thank you!

My hard drive crashed leaving me without my critical financial information and research that is crucial to my business. After checking various vendors on the Internet, I chose Disk Doctor Labs because of their level of service, and they far exceeded my expectations. Aziz Mirza, the manager of Disk Doctor Labs in Norcross, GA, personally took charge of my account, quickly fixed the problems and returned my restored files within a week on a hard drive that I could return for an account credit. Throughout the process, Disk Doctor Labs kept me informed, responded quickly to my calls and delivered my lost files quickly, efficiently and at an extremely fair price. I recommend them unequivocally.

Thank you!
