Moving Files between Windows XP and Windows 7 Systems
Faculty with Windows XP systems in their office must first log into a Windows 7 system to create a Windows 7 user profile. Once the Windows 7 user profile is created, the faculty will see the Windows 7 folders on their H:/ drive, including the Windows 7 Desktop folder and the Windows 7 My Documents folder (called simply Documents on the H:/ drive). The Windows 7 My Document folder has the following icon on your H:\ drive. Files on Windows XP systems that need to be accessible in the classroom, can be placed in the Windows 7 Document folder .
An alternative is to point to your H:\ drive while you are in the classroom. Use the instructions below.
Click on the Start icon in the bottom left corner.
Then replace the words "Search programs and files"
\\kermit\home$\username (Your username is usually your first initial and last name.)
Your H:\ drive will now appear in a new Windows Explorer window.
