new PC

Post by patrickg450 »

Ok guys, been tinkering with my new WIN 10 PC and decided to stop and ask a question.
So I do a monthly save or back up of my files to a jump drive. I have MASSIVE amounts of tracks, going back like 14 years. I started on Mapsource and waited and waited to go BC. So now I have BC loaded on the new PC and I have copied all my files over from the old machine.

So is there an easier way to import or get all these files into the new BC on my new PC? I am currently doing one or 2 at a time so I can organize them. I have so many folders with tracks, like the states, or get together......can I imprt a folder like "TN" that has over 65 tracks in it?

Suggestions?
