Windows-Easy-Transfer-for-Windows-10

In Windows 7 there was an excellent tool called Windows Easy Transfer to transfer all your settings and data from one machine to another or to backup data to restore after a computer rebuild.

Well Microsoft being the helpful company they are decided to remove this from Windows 10!

So, we are fighting back and showing you how to get Windows Easy Transfer to work on your Windows 10 machine.

Video Guide

We have created a walk through video on how easy it is to download and run Windows Easy Transfer on a Windows 10 computer. You can take a look at this, but we also suggest taking a read through our written guide, with screenshots to make this process as easy as possible for you.

Step by Step Guide

Below you will find a full set of written instructions with screenshots on how to get Windows Easy Transfer working for you.

First of all, you need to download the Windows Easy Transfer Package available by clicking the link below:

Download Windows Easy Transfer

Download the WET Package For Windows 10

Included in this file are the 32-bit and 64-bit files you will require. Ensure that you use the correct one for your version of Windows 10.

You will need to copy the folder called “migwiz” from within the zip file:

1

Then you need to paste this folder into the following location on your Windows 10 machine:

C:\Windows\System32\

Note that we are assuming that your Windows installation is on the C: drive, if not, change the drive letter.

Then go into the “migwiz” folder and run the following file:

C:\Windows\System32\migwiz\MigSetup.exe

This will then start the setup process and launch the Windows Easy Transfer program.

If you want to use it in the future again, you can then run this file:

C:\Windows\System32\migwiz\MigWiz.exe

This will then launch the Windows Easy Transfer program:

That’s it! simple as that to bring back a tool that Microsoft should never have removed from Windows 10!
