I am trying to transfer files from an external hard drive to my new Windows 7. All is well until I get a Drive K screen listing all the files on the external hard drive. How do I copy files from one to the other from this screen?

Transfer of files from an external hard drive to Windows 7.  Everything's hooked up; a screen shows for Drive K, listing the files.  How do I now copy them?  There seems to be no indication.

It seems like u r trying to do 2 things at once - take it a step at a time. Lets sort out making sure your files are copied properly & can be opened BEFORE sorting out your shortcuts.

1. Use Win Explorer to find the folder where u copied them (C:/somewhere) I assume.
2. Are your files there? If, u double clik on them wot happens? Do u get any error messages? Do any progs open?
