HP PCs - Transferring Your Files in Windows XP When Upgrading to Windows 7 or 8

This document applies to HP and Compaq computers with Windows XP operating system.
Microsoft is no longer supporting the Windows XP operating system as of April 8, 2014. Computers still running Windows XP are more vulnerable to viruses and attacks, because Microsoft is not offering essential security updates for the operating system. Over time, an increasing number of apps and devices will become incompatible with Windows XP. For more information, see the Microsoft Web page Windows XP support has ended (in English).
This document provides information about software you can use to transfer photos, documents, and other personal files from your computer with Windows XP to a computer with Windows 7 or Windows 8

Transferring your files

Use PCMover to transfer your files from a Windows XP computer to a computer with Windows 7 or Windows 8. Microsoft is offering a free download of PCmover - data transferring software from Laplink.
When you download and open PCmover on both computers, personal files (such as photos and documents) are migrated to your new computer. Your new computer is updated with the files you want to keep.
To download PCmover, visit the Microsoft Web page Free data transfer (in English).
note:
PCmover transfers files only, and does not transfer software programs or Windows 8 apps. Because many Windows XP software titles are not compatible with Windows 7 or Windows 8, you may want to download or purchase newer versions of software.
