Getting new PC next week. Got shedloads of stuff to transfer from the old to the new - mainly too big for floppies (and they take hours anyway)
Present PC has an external Zip. Basic plan is to copy as much as poss to Zip discs then connect drive to new PC and dump the info on there, repeating as necessary. Might take hours mind...
Must be a way to connect 2 PCs together (cheaply!) and just copy the stuff. If so, by what cabling (probably obvious?) and also, how do you get one PC to recognize the other?
Also thought, would it be poss to get a 2 into 1 serial cable adaptor and have both PCs connected to the Zip at the same time, so when files have been copied to a disc, the new PC can access them without having to disconnect, re-connect etc? (would this cause conflicts?)
Any help appreciated!
