I just recently bought a all-in-one computer. I would like to transfer my files from my old tower pc hardrive into my new computer. What are the possible ways for me to do that since my old pc is dead. My new computer is an apple IMAC so Im hoping that the files will be transferable.

Thank you

since my old pc is dead

Since the old computer is dead, the best way would be to pull the hard drive from the old and install it as a secondary drive in the new computer, or into an enclosure attached to the new computer. Then copy your documents, photos, etc. over to the new drive.
