8/05/2015 – Copy Files From One Domain to Directory

Posted by Jamison on 05 08 2015.

We duplicate our files from one domain to another directory due to some reasons.  It could be that we are backing up our files for security purposes.  It could also be that the size of our files is getting bigger thus we need to manage the size and domain and transfer files.

 

Copying files is just simple.  You only need to consider some factors such as the capacity of your computer to store more data.

 

In copying files, we usually do the classic command “copy” then “paste.” But this time we need to transfer or copy files from one domain to another directory.

 

Is this applicable to any operating system?

 

It is only applicable to Windows operating systems such as Windows 1.0 (1985), Windows 2.0 (1987), Windows 3.x (1990, 1992), Windows 95 (1995), Windows 98 (1998), Windows ME (2000), Windows 2000 (2000), Windows XP (2001), Windows Vista (2006), Windows 7 (2009), Windows 8 (2012), Windows 8.1 (2013).

Is there a possibility that my computer will crash after or during this process?

 

There is no need to panic.  You just need to be careful not to unplug your computer or simply avoid anything that can interrupt the process.  As long as you select the “copy” option, not the “cut” option, assuming that the operating system you are using is Windows, you should have nothing to worry about.   The files should be retained in the folder that you were processing from.

 

How do I copy files now from one domain to another directory?

 

First, you may want to check which domain your computer belongs to by selecting “System” under “System and Maintenance” from the “Windows” key.  Note that you will not be able to view the name of your domain if your computer is not connected to a domain.  Check this under “Workgroup settings” under “domain” of “computer name.”  You can identify the name of the workgroup where your computer is located if your computer is connected to a workgroup.

 

To start copying files from one domain to directory, simply follow the steps below:

 

STEP 1: Press the Windows key command on your keyboard.

 

STEP 2: Click the “Search programs and files” bar and select “Windows easy transfer.”

 

STEP 3: Click the “Next” button.

 

STEP 4: Select the “An external hard disk or USB flash drive” option.

 

STEP 5: Choose the “This is an old computer” option.

 

STEP 6: Click “Save.” Note you may also input password (optional).

 

STEP 7: Save it to your desired external drive or directory.

 

STEP 8: Click “Next” then click “Close.”

 

STEP 9: Create a new folder named “Copy folder.”

 

STEP 10: Repeat steps 1 to 5, but select “This is a new computer.”

 

STEP 11: Click “Yes.”

 

STEP 12: Open the saved file.  Click “Transfer.”

 

STEP 13: Click “Close.”

 

Now your files are already copied.  It is recommended, however, to restart your computer.  Take note that while transferring files, you can customize and select the type of files you want to transfer or copy.
