Easy Transfer will not start up second time

Posted: 10-27-2007, 01:56 AM
I cancelled Easy Transfer when it was scanning my old XP SP2 machine and
restarted it, planning to choose a different option. I got the new password
and keyed it in but now the XP machine cannot connect to the Vista machine.
I've tried it both ways.

Easy Tranfer Info link.

Why don't you just copy your data to CD, Memory Stick, External Drive, etc,
and transfer it that way to Vista.

And manually redo your personal settings in Vista; it doesn't take THAT long
to do!

Update: I also downloaded the EZT Companion Beta and it transferred about 40
programs beautifully. Now you must admitk that was a timesaver. Then just
for grins I restarted EZT and it did create the connection, but now it hangs
on the XP machine as soon as it starts the file size calcs. Any ideas (other
than just do it manually)?

More progress. I decided to migrate only my own objects, and unchecked all
the others. The transfer worked, but every folder I try to open on the Vista
machine gives me an error: C:\... is not accessible. Access is denied.
ID's are the same on both computers. How do I get to all the files that got
migrated?
