USB link adapter for XP/Vista

  goffer23 15:09 24 Mar 15

I bought this link adaptor in 2008 and it worked well transferring files to my then new laptop. I am now buying a new Win 8.1 laptop and my old laptop runs Win 7. Can I use the old link adapter to do file transfers or do I have to get a newer model?

Thanks in anticipation

It might work but since both laptops are probably wireless you can use the network to connect them.

I recommend Laplink - click here - in fact Microsoft recommend this as well. I used it a while ago and it did the job, over a wireless connection.
