Transferring folders from one computer email account to another

Q: Transferring folders from one computer email account to another

I have Windows Live Mail on two computers and use the same email address and password for both.

One is a desktop with Vista Home Premium SP2 and the other is a laptop with Windows 7.

I have a large folder section on my older desktop/Vista that I want to transfer to the Windows Live Mail on my newer laptop/Win7 so that no matter which computer I am on, I can store email documents in the proper folders and have a complete record on both computers.

For transferring I have a couple of larger flash drives and also have external drives for both computers.

Can someone tell me how to accomplish this please.

Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was living with a relative who had a comcast account. She allowed me to put my email address on that account. Relative moved away, closed the comcast account. I opened up a new comcast account and wanted to transfer my email address from the first account to my new account. How do I do this?

If the account was closed then the messages are likely gone. Unless you have them stored in an email program on your computer such as Outlook, Live Mail, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or something similar.

I've got a couple programs on a couple computers that I no longer have the install file or the discs for (Kazaa Lite and Pinnacle studio 8). I'm planning on putting together a nice computer and want to transfer those programs to the new one. Here's my question: can I just move the folder from the program folder and eb done with it? or do I have to do other stuff like go into the registry and get stuff from there too? Thanks for the help.
 

A:Transferring Program folders to another Computer

you need to have the install files - coping from program files will not work.
also Kazza lite is a P2P if you are copying music illegally then this site will not provide support.

Does any know of a tutorial or simple instructions for transferring email, bookmarks and addressbook to new computer? For IE, OE, Netscape, FF and Tbird? Should data be exported and imported? Or should the folder be copied and pasted? I have read several different descriptions and would like to know the correct way so that data can be read and not lost. Thanks.

I recently purchased a new laptop and I would like to transfer all my email, including the Inbox, Sent, and Outbox folders, and the address file, to my new machine. I recently used my new 8Gig USB key drive to transfer some large files, and it did the job quite well. I am wondering if I can transfer my email files in a similar manner. Any ideas on how to do this task as efficiently as possible?

Thank you,

I want to transfer a complete user account from old to new computer (using windows easy transfer, or other method), but there is already an account with the same name on the new computer and I want to keep that account. I renamed the account on the old machine, but the subfolder under C:\users kept the same name. Tried renaming the subfolder but that detached it from the account altogether.

A:Transferring user account with same name.

For security reasons the originally installed Administrative-level Account will not change it's User folder name.

You can try importing the old account anyway to see what happens, however importing User AppData settings is a corruption path so it's always better to start fresh in these cases for best performance.

I set up a personal account on my computer and a business one. I have hundreds of personal pictures in a folder on my main business user and want to transfer them to my personal. Can someone tell me how to do this?

A:Transferring Files From One Account To Another

This is very easy. On your personal account, go to (assuming this is correct on your PC) C:\Documents and Settings\<buisness account username>

and then you will see folders such as <username>'s Documents and Desktop. You can browse in this window to where the pictures are (probably My Pictures?) and select the one's you want and copy them/move them to the personal account's Desktop or My Pictures folder.

If you get Access Denied errors, then you could put the pictures on an external hard drive or a flash drive and move them that way.

Hi,

Just that. I am trying to improve my folder structure (placement) on my HD between partitions and I am finding that this involves transferring folders and files between partitions.

I know that transferring within a partition is lickedy split but transfer speeds between partitions is ranging from a few kilobits to a few (1-8) megabits/sec. When dealing with large GB amounts of files this is becoming quit a task.
So, my question is: Is there a way to transfer files and folders between partitions faster?

John

PS Vista is really slow with this. I'm not sure how XP works with this.

Upgraded to W10 from W7 several months ago now and activated and used only the built-in Administrator account. Which is what I have done for many years now to stop the UAC popups.

However, I have soon discovered this Administrator account, while blocking the UAC popups has some serious limitations. Like cannot run Edge or any of the Metro Apps. Yes, I have tried the workarounds but they too have issues.

So how can I transferred all my settings for my programs and windows to another local username?

Any suggestions appreciated.

TIA

Greg

A:Transferring Administrator Account Profile

One thing to try might be Windows Enabler utility, which will enable the "Copy to..." button in "Advanced system settings -> User profiles" window. That should let you to copy you entire 'Users\Administrator" folder, thus handing it over to another user profile.

However, I'm not sure if there are any peculiarities in the built-in Administrator account that would prevent this trick from working properly.

A:Problem transferring files to new account?.

on you acount you need to follow these instructions to make them unprivate

To make your folders private
Open My Computer.
Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive (C:), unless you have more than one drive on your computer).
If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show the contents of this drive.

Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.
Double-click your user folder.
Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click Properties.
On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only I have access to it check box.
Notes

To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
This option is only available for folders included in your user profile. Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, Desktop, Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders private, they are available to everyone who uses your computer.
When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as well. For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music and My Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its subfolders unless you make them private.
You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted as NTFS.

I've just discovered that the house we are moving to can't get Virgin cable so I will have to change broadband provider. I will therefore lose my blueyonder email address. Is there an easy way to transfer contents of my inbox and sent items to my gmail account - just tried forwarding but it will only allow me to forward 8 at a time and there are probably a thousand or so as I have had the account many years.

The problem I'm having is that my folders that I used on OE and all my saved email is somewhere off in never never land. No matter what I try I cannot get those folders transferred to Windows Live.

All of my accounts work perfectly. And across PC's, as I have a desktop also setup with a couple of different and same accounts.

It is possible that Chrome caused an issue. and it is possible you need Live Essentials to use chrome properly. I don't know as I forbid Chrome being installed on any of my PC's.

I am asking a lot of questions because I am trying to move data from one hard drive to another and I don't want to boot with both drives in the computer because each has a copy of the OS on it and that confuses Windows boot up. I need to transfer my email and bookmarks to the new hard drive. I think I can copy each of them to files and save them to CD and then drag and drop them into their respective slots. I don't know what extensions to use for the files. Can any one tell me if I am right and what extensions to use?

On the other hand would it be possible to boot with the old drive as the master, uninstall the OS on it and then reinstall it as the slave to the new hard drive?

I have a new ASUS notebook and it uses Windows 8. On my home pc I have Windows Vista and was able to set up multiply email accounts in Window Live Mail. (my charter, my hubby charter, 2 school google accounts and yahoo)
I was able to read mail coming thru our main email acct (my charter), if an email came thru that needed to go to my hubbys account or another account I was able to drop and drag it to the other account listed on the screen.

I have most of my emails set up on my new ASUS notebook. Is there any way to drop and drag emails from one account to another? I can drag the email and hover over the new email account, but it does not drag it.

Thanks for any help. I am new to the notebook thing and windows 8.

Hi,

Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

I don't want that.

How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

You have converted your local user account to a Microsoft account. It's easy to switch back to a local account, just follow the instructions in this tutorial: Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

When you have switched back to a local account and you want to download another app from the Windows Store, follow the instructions in this tutorial (Method Two, Step 5) to keep using your local account to sign in to Windows and only use a Microsoft account to sign in to Store: Store - Sign in with Different Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

I know I can make the adjustments in Excel, but that takes time and I have to think there is an easier way. Is there a progression of exporting and importing in a better sequence to make this work.

Outlook - hotmail, gmail, thunderbird etc...

I would appreciate any help on this topic. Thanks.

A:Transferring email from Outlook Express on XP to a new Windows 7 comp?

I'm not sure Live Mail (if it is still around at all) would be the best choice for someone accustomed to Outlook Express.

You might want to look at Thunderbird from Mozilla. It can be configured to pretty much resemble OE.

Does this person want to import old saved emails from OE into the new email app that you choose? That can be quite a chore and will likely be confusing and frustrating. I got it done eventually, but it wasn't pleasant.

Going from memory, you should be prepared to MANUALLY enter address book info for people he likes to email with---rather than try to import it using some type of transfer or import function. For reasons i don't understand, switching email clients is still a major pain--stuck in the dark ages--no improvements since the 1990s the last I checked.

But if there is nothing to be carried forward other than the old email address, it's pretty easy. You'd just have to enter configuration info into the email app configuration just as he did at some time in the past with Outlook Express---account settings, server settings per his ISP, folder setup, etc.

Something odd has just happened with my mail.
I previously had both the hotmail account and an MS Exchange work email account loaded onto the Win8 CP mail.
Now the exchange account has disappeared, and there is no longer a button anywhere to allow me to add the account back in.

Anyone have any suggestions?

are u using the metro app? if that's the case;

in your Metro Mail App, open up the charms bar (win key+C) and go to settings or accounts, from there you can add new or delete...

Do you have a home network setup there? Make sure they are connected properly and are allowed internet access.

If you tried the above, or it doesn't apply to you, download HijackThis. Create a folder for it at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required).

Hi everyone!

I'm completely confused. One of my clients is a company and I've shifted their email hosting from webmail to Google apps. I have also transferred their domain name from the previous hosting provider to mine. So I've changed their DNS and it works well with Google apps.

The problem however, is that they still sometimes receive emails from their webmail. The emails that they receive in their webmail are emails from their previous service providers' clients. I don't know if I've explained that well enough.

What I don't understand though, is that HOW is the other email hosting provider able to direct their emails to the webmail, when all DNS points to Google apps? I've even asked my domain registrar to clear the DNS cache in case that was the problem. Does anyone know what might be happening here? Thanks.

A:My user’s account folders, in which partition?

In the properties window you've clicked on location tab. Yes?

You then press move and search for your now location, I always have a new folder waiting there with its new name. Press OK and on the location tab press Apply. You'll be asked if you want to move all the files etc., say yes and off it goes.

Desktop & Favorites I've moved the same without a problem but you can't move the C:/User/Name folder as, yes, some of your folders have to stay there. App Data for a big example.

I had an unnecessary Outlook Express account which I deleted. I then saw all its folders disappear from Outlook Express, but I still needed to keep those folders and go through the messages there.How can I get the folders from the deleted account. Presumably, the folders should still be there--I only deleted the account, not the folders.

The folders in the Guest are shortcuts of my originals but with out Open Office properties. I will save and try to put them back in Admin account. What do I do about the unknown guest?

A:Guest Account has Admin folders as shortcuts

Hello Avie, I am afraid I am not sure what you mean in your above post ^?

I got a little confused. Do you mean that you are sharing folders and/or sharing public folders and the guest account has access to files stored in them? I do not know of any other way in which the guest account can access Admin account folders. If so, type "Change advanced sharing options" without quotes into the start menu search bar, and select options to NOT share public folders and NOT share folders and printers. In addition, make sure you DO select password protected sharing to force a password requirement for all network connected computers in the event you decide later on to start sharing (added security).

If I missed the mark, please explain further. Hope this helps

When in doubt it's best to leave the Homegroup on all machines then just create a new one and rejoin.

This query is getting lots of views but no-one has been brave enough to take a stab at helping me to resolve this conundrum. Does anyone in the Microsoft world know how to get Windows 8.1 network shares working properly, or even what the company now considers "properly" to be? In addition to the above problem, standard users are not able to access folders on another Win-8 machine which have "Modify" permission for that user. Members of the Administrators group cannot access other users' folders on the same or on another Win-8 machine, even when they are given "Full Control" permission.

I have somehow deleted my personal folders in my inbox. When I restore a .pst file from previous backup, I have everything such as inbox, deleted items, sent items, etc. However, the personal folders I created within inbox are missing. I am so confused. They have had to been backed up because I can go back and recover deleted emails from years ago, yet I still cannot find my very important folders that I created within my inbox. This pertains to the discussion as I am using Outlook 2013 and I was able to find them when my hard drive failed a year ago, but as of two days ago, I cannot find them. Is there something hiding them? I have used scanpst.exe as well but to no avail.

It's probably best not to save anything to the Desktop but to the Downloads Folder under your login name in C:\Users then point all your downloads to that Folder or move them to that Folder after completing the download. Oops, you are logging in to your own account/name or logging her off then you on? Using Switch User may not always help.

I use4 a local account, no MSA. I want to use OneDrive as a repository that automatically syncs files I place there with the Microsoft Cloud so I can access those files and folders from other computers.

Right now, after a Clean Install, OneDrive has a lot of folders I don't wnat there, so how do I get rid of most of them?

A:OneDrive and local account - get rid of most folders showing

What folders are you talking about, specifically? Your screenshot does not show any folders related to OneDrive (besides the root one). Synced OneDrive folders would be located under the root OneDrive folder, not next to it.

Your screenshot shows standard Windows folders typically found under Users\<your username> (AppData, Documents, Pictures, Desktop etc.). But what else you have there does not look like a clean install at all. You have a whole bunch of third-party folders there.

Best Buy store told me that I could run into problems trying to transfer from an XP computer to a Vista computer using a transfer cable. They recommended my buying an external harddrive and using that to transfer the contents of one computer into a new computer. So that's what I ended up doing, buying an external harddrive . Is this true ? Will my favourite web site URL's transfer to the external harddrive and will I then be able to download it into my new Vista computer once I have bought it ?

Hello Peter912

Windows Easy Transfer is a program which comes bundled with Vista. It is meant specifically to transfer all your files and settings from XP to Vista.

This is the best way to do it and you can read all about it here. Just scroll down a bit.
This is a good tutorial which explains how to use the program

Email and favourites, all can be transferred
