Migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 8
« on: June 17, 2013, 07:50:12 PM »
We just changed computers from Windows 7 to Windows 8.  For some reason we cannot get our data from our old computer to Windows 8.  What can we do about that?



Anytime you go from one OS to another OS you need to copy your old PC files to some external device so you can copy them back into the new PC/OS.  Please review the tutorial how to backup your data.  Once you have a copy of your GFC and GPD (extensions name) files on any external device (CD, memory stick, etc.) you should copy them back into the GEFC folder/Directory on Your C drive.  You may need a new registration code.  This procedure also works going from XP to Windows 7.
