Hello,

 

I am not sure if this is the correct forum. I have purchased a new laptop and want to try and transfer everything from my old laptop.

 

I have an external drive but I know that won't transfer my programs.

 

Is there a way to do this?

 

I am going from a hard drive to an SSD if that matters.

 

Thanks

Probably the easiest way is to purchase a hard drive dock, like this: https://www.amazon.c...n/dp/B0099TX7O4

 

You plug your old drive into the dock, the dock into your new laptop via USB. Use a program like:

 

1. http://www.macrium.c...eflectfree.aspx

 

2. https://www.paragon-...free/index.html

 

Transfer the data to the new system.

You might also check to see if there is a program from the manufacturer of the SSD to duplicate the old drive to the new drive. I know that many of the normal hard drive companies have such a program, but depending on who makes the SSD, they might or might not. You would still need to have both of the drives connected.
