|I have an old Dell running Windows 95, which we are attempting to phase out. However, we need about 2GB of data transferred from the machine to the new Win7 machine.|
-It is my understanding that USB devices such as flash drives will not work win the version of Win95 I have.
-This machine is not recognizing any networks and will not connect to the internet.
-About 40% of the keys on the keyboard are non-functional, and we do not have a spare.
-It is my understanding that transferring data via parallel to USB would be potentially dangerous to the files.
-This machine cannot be down/off for more than 5-10 minutes at a time, thus ruling out removing the hard drive.
Does anyone have an ideas as to how I can get the data onto a newer machine despite all the problems I am running into? I was thinking maybe a crossover cable but am unsure of how that would work, and whether or not I would need software to do so... and since it is having issues with networking anyway, I'm wondering if it may not work at all.
