Moving files from MAC Laptop to Windows PC

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I recently purchased a new desktop with Windows.  The computer is much faster and I custom designed it for renderings.  Currently, all of my plans and Chief Architect files are on the MAC.  Is there a way to move the files over to the Windows PC without losing plans, data, content, etc?

 

Thank you!

I don't know why you couldn't just copy to a thumb drive and move to new rig.

I am pretty sure I cannot due to one computer being mac and the other being Windows. Doesn't the thumb drive have to be reformatted?

I do not think the thumb drive needs to be reformatted.  If so,  set up a drop box folder,  put the files in there and then you can access the files from either computer.  I have done it that way for years.

 

Try the thumb drive first,  the worst thing that could happen is a cataclysmic event.
