I've upgraded to a new computer and want to transfer each user to the new one. Some have already logged onto the new computer, so they already have a profile.

When I run Transwiz to transfer their files and settings, will there be a problem? If, say, a file has already been created on the new computer, will the same file on the old computer, when transferred, overwrite the new file, be skipped, or created with a slightly different name?

Thanks.
Brian

If a profile already exists for a user, Transwiz will prompt you for what to do.

You can merge the transferred data with the existing user profile, or have Transwiz create a new profile.
