You want to copy the files and directories on the Hard Drive to diskettes Copying is a lot different than copying and pasting You want to get a C: Prompt which should look like C: \>cd\File Name To copy you will do a C: \File Name > copy _ with a space Then you want to list the diskette drive the copy is going to which looks like a :\ When you put it all together it will look like this C:\File Name>copy a:\ Then press enter to copy the files or directory You may need to do this several times to copy all the files Then install the diskettes on to your new PC Check your new files and make sure all the files are in your new PC When all is correct you can delete the files and directories in the Apple PC before you dispose of the PC.
