Transferring files from one computer to another is the basic thing you should learn when you purchased a new computer, and you have never had a computer or laptop before. Transferring files from one another is another essential activity in computerization, especially among gamers, businesspersons, and accounting employees. Yet even this simple task could not be easily learnt by some people, who have never used computer before. This article, therefore, will give you some ways on transferring files from one computer to another. Learning these ways is not difficult, so you will be able to master it within hours.

 

The first and common method on transferring files from one computer to another is using an external storage media as USB flash disk. Flash disk is the common and most-used file transfer media due to its small size, which make this gadget handy. This removable storage media on transferring files from one computer to another, however, comes in limited capacity from only 1GB up to 32GB; some technology manufacturers are even providing a flash disk with 64GB storage capacity.

 

The above gadget is suitable for those who are need to temporarily store any types of files, to be transferred to the main computer. Regardless of the handy characteristic, flash disk is less preferable for those who are in the need of transferring files from one computer to another, in a large scale as in enterprise level. Besides, flash disk is not suitable for immediate transfer, for transferring files from one computer to another with this gadget comes in several steps: plug-in the gadget, transfer the data, remove safely, and then plug-in it again on the main computer.

 

For the need of transferring files from one computer to another immediately, LAN cable will make a better choice. Local Area Network (LAN) cable is widely used among gamers, to play multiplayer games as DOTA and Crisis; this cable is basically making the file in certain computer accessible to another computer. This cable is what people use in a share computer, so they are capable in accessing or transferring files from one computer to another, without having to use another transfer device.

 

In transferring files from one computer to another can also be done using a device called EasyTransfer cable, a new application (or some are calling it feature) that is offered by Microsoft for Windows OS users. Basically, this cable works similarly as LAN cable; yet, it is offered as one package with Windows OS, so users do not have to purchase a new cable. Another method on transferring the data is by connecting the hard disk between one computer to another. This is pretty much a less preferable way in transferring files from one computer to another.
