Hi there,

Hopefully you've figured it out by now, but in case not I'm happy to help. Have you done your entire data transfer using a 2 GB flash drive? There are much easier, faster ways. You could use Windows Easy Transfer, for one: Windows 7 features - Windows Easy Transfer - Microsoft Windows

Or you could set up a shared network between your old and new computer, like this: Networking home computers running different versions of Windows

Let me know if you have any questions!
