Moving to a new PC

Hi there,

So I just purchased a new pc and I just wanted to ask a question.

What would be the best way to migrate all of my apps etc. from one pc to the othere as I am not able to redownload all of them.

Thanks a bunch

iTunes remembers your purchase history. You can also export them using the export feature.

I think I copied the files in the mobile applications folder manually and it worked

I have copied the whole music folder where iTunes is by default. I pasted it in the new computer. I installed itunes and it recognized all my apps and music playlists.

External hard drive. Pick one up from about 30.

If something online is free, you are not the customer - you are the product.

Zinstall XP7.
It will migrate programs and files from XP to Windows 7, unlike an external drive which will only help with files and you still do the work.

Has other perks, too - can run incompatible apps on Win7.
