    Moving data between devices is as easy as U-S-B




    BEST HARDWARE

    Moving data between devices is as easy as U-S-B

    By Michael Lasky

    Whether you're facing that mass file migration from an old PC to a new one, or you just want to move selected files from one digital device to another or to the Cloud new USB and wireless devices make this task as simple as dragging and dropping.

    A quartet of devices makes it quick and easy to move documents, photos, music, and other data among PCs, Macs, tablets, and smartphones via USB, Wi-Fi or both.

    The full text of this column is posted at WindowsSecrets.com/best-hardware/moving-data-between-devices-is-as-easy-as-u-s-b/ (paid content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    Nice find: j5create JUC400 Wormhole Switch

    Looks like a decent little device for those that don't do networking or Wifi.

    The article on the iTwin uses the terms Primary, Remote and Local. I was OK until "local." Does "remote" become "local" or does "primary" become "local"?

    Both the primary and any secondary PCs get both local and remote folders while half an iTwin is plugged into it. On both machines, the local folder contains pointers to files or folders on its own drive(s) and the remote folder contains pointers to files or folders on the other machine's drive(s).

    So local on one is synched with remote on the other and vice versa. Local shows whats being shared to the other end, and remote shows whats being shared from the other end.

    iTwin don't use the terms primary and secondary (or master and slave), because both halves are equal. But logically one has to be plugged in first before the other can be useful.
