Product Description

Transfer files between nearby Windows PCs with greater speed, plug-and-play ease, and point-to-point simplicity and security. The Plugable USB 2.0 Windows Transfer Cable works great for transferring files and folders when upgrading from an older Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, or XP computer to a newer one, or for transferring data between two folders on a ongoing basis. (Note: Programs will not be transferred. They must be re-installed from the original disk or downloaded file.).

Software

The cable also includes a full license to Bravura's Easy Computer Sync software ($19.95 value). Created by one of the original developers of Windows Easy Transfer at Microsoft, the Bravura software manages the connection and transfer process for you and includes all needed drivers, making it easy to transfer your important documents and media files.

Compatibility

All needed drivers for Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, and XP are included in the Bravura software. Supported by Linux kernel 3.0 and later as a high-speed virtual network interface, no special file transfer support. No support for Mac. Compatible with active and passive USB 2.0 extenders like the Plugable USB 2.0 10 meter extension cable (not included) for greater distances between PCs. Not compatible with ARM-based Windows (MS Surface RT).

In the box

6-foot (2-meter) USB 2.0 Easy Transfer Cable and quick installation guide. No CD - all software and drivers are built into Windows and Linux or are available via download.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! ---- Plugable USB Easy Transfer Cable 20 May 2012
By Tricon
Verified Purchase
Delivered in two days!!!! Works perfectly and the optional downloadable software is excellent and a must have. This is the only 3rd party software available for easy transfer cables and it provides full two way drag and drop file transfer. This can be done from either computer. I transferred files from a 32bit windows 7 starter machine to a 64bit Win 7 home premium machine. The same product key can be used for installs on all your XP, Vista and Win 7 machines. The product is very easy to use and the option to use the Microsoft or the downloadable Bravura software jumps on the screen as soon as you plug the cable in. The cable does not operate like a networked connection as it is intended for file transfer only but it will sync selected folders so they are the same on each computer.

This product does exactly what it is supposed to do.... i.e. to transfer data between computers. The free down-loadable software is excellent. Drag and drop is very easy to set up. All in all a great piece of hardware supported by good software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent solution to a daily nuisance problem 6 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
I was swayed towards this plugable product over the Belkin alternative because of the downloadable software that comes with it. I have a daily requirement to transfer files to and fro between a W7 laptop and an XP desktop PC. Belkin and others gave the impression that all they were good for was a one-off transfer when upgrading from one PC to another whereas I wanted a fast way to transfer files without resorting to copying to a ramdrive, unplugging, replugging into the destination PC and copying on to the HD. If that is what YOU need then look no further, THIS is the product for you, do not consider any other. An unreserved 5 stars for the time and grief it saves me every single working day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should Have Got One Before! 27 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
The cable arrived on time with a licence for additional transfer software and outline instructions to use Windows Easy Transfer. I just used Windows Easy Transfer (for access, click on Windows Start button and type easy transfer into the search window) on both Windows 7 machines and can only say it was the most straightforward process. The standard transfer copied all my photos, music, video and documents across without any need for me to be involved. I seem to recall it is possible to pick and choose what files are transferred but a quick visit to Easy Transfer will verify that?

Naturally, it did not transfer programs but it did transfer files created using programs (music and video projects etc.) so that they were picked up when I reinstalled the programs on my new pc, the exception being games where everything went back to the beginning.

I had about 250GB of data to copy and it took a couple of hours but it did the job I asked of it without any hitches. I just wish I had bought one before, it made light work of what can be a difficult task.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful item 30 Sep 2012
By Syrene
Verified Purchase
Being no IT genius, but too tight to pay someone to do my data transfer, I purchased this item with a little trepidation.
I needn't have worried. Transferring data from my old Windows vista laptop to my new Windows 7 was relatively straightforward despite the old laptop being somewhat the worse for wear.
I did have to faff around a bit with downloading drivers to the old machine but all is explained clearly.
I only knocked off a star because a few of my photos were inexplicably left on the old machine. Only a few and they were quickly moved using a memory stick, but if using this item I would recommend having a quick check that nothing important has been left behind.
