Got new computer. I have XP on new computer. Had Office 2000 now have Office Home and Student 2007. I had a ton of addresses in Insert/Auto Text in Word. And Bookmarks on Firefox. Am not totally stupid but willing to learning. Boss's husband transferred (he said all hard drive) data to Western Digital external drive (I think - black box 6"X8"). Shows as H: on My Computer. I have no idea where to look or transfer these files from the old to the new computer. Did they save on that H: WD? Where would the files be? How do I transfer them? How do I proceed? On the other end of this, I cannot see where to enter the auto text on the new computer. It does not have the same options on 2007. I feel lost.

Isac hi. I don't think I'll be able to help you all the way through this. But, when you open the H: drive, what do you see, in the way of folders and files ?

OK. Go into Control Panel > Folder Options > View.
Uncheck, Hide extensions for known file types.
And when you look at those files. Select View > Details

I did this. But am unclear where I am to find the info you want. In the bottom left corner of the window I have Details
(H:)
Local Disk
File System: FAT32
Free Space: 926 GB
Total Size: 931 GB
Then to the right side of each folder there is a column Type: File Folder (under that column) then the Date Modified column: many dates and times (under that column). In the address bar it says H:\ Am I missing something?
