StarTech.com's USB 2.0 Easy Transfer cable offers a convenient solution for migrating files from Windows XP™ or Windows Vista™ or Windows 7 computers to the newer Windows 8 platform, using the Windows™ Easy Transfer software.

Instead of having to transfer files from your old computer to your new one over a network or CD/DVD storage, this high quality data transfer cable lets you connect one Windows computer to another, directly through a USB 2.0 connection, supporting data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps.

This product supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8, but it does not support Windows 8.1 and later. As of version 8.1, Windows has removed support for cables in the Windows Easy Transfer software.
