Fast digital image transfer
October 15, 2004
| || |
I have been trying to move my digital images from my main computer to another so that I can clean off the hard drive and update the system. The files are too large to just copy; that would take several years. I've tried USB-to-USB transfer cables, and that didn't work. Without losing my images, is there an easier process? I'm open to most anything to save my images.

, if it's available, is an Ethernet-to-Ethernet direct connection with a crossover cable, using software designed to migrate your files from one PC to another.
I can personally vouch for Alohabob's PC Relocator
for this type of task, and it's the only one I could find (doing a quick search) that supports the direct IP connection.
