The LeapFrog Epic – Unboxing

Move stuff from old to new Windows…for free…

Need to get from an older version of Windows to a newer one?…

For transitioning from Windows XP to a later operating system, I stumbled across this:

“Microsoft has partnered with Laplink to provide you with data transfer tools that transfer selected files, folders, and more from an old Windows PC to a new Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 PC.

“24/7 free transfer assistance…

“Free download available from September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016. Will run only if source PC is Windows XP or later and destination PC is Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. The free data transfer will not migrate your apps.”

————————————————-

Also, just to toss this in here…a tool has been available from Laplink’s website. (Maybe it’s the same, or similar.)

“…Laplink PCmover Express for Windows XP is an easy way to move your files, settings and user profiles from your old Windows XP computer to your new Windows PC.

“Will run only if source PC is Windows XP and destination PC is Windows 7 or later. The free data transfer will not migrate your apps.

“24/7 Free transfer assistance…”

Changing out the Hard Drive – Asus K55

Yesterday evening when I jumped on Periscope @techtakradio I decided it would be fun to exchange the hard drive in my Asus K55 Laptop with the Kingston 120GB SSD Drive I found at OfficeMax on Sale. What Started to be a simple exchange turned into 18 minutes on Periscope as we talked about Windows 10 and the Benefits of SSD Technology.

We were able to save the original meaning of our Periscope and edit it for you to check out on the ease of Switching out the Hard Drive in your Laptop
