    I have a Dell Inspiron 13 and a Dell Inspiron 11. I want to transfer files from one to the other. I have create a HomeGroup yet when connected via a wireless network they refuse to transfer any files and the systems crash requiring a reboot of both. I could use the BitTorrent sync. feature but this would use up my data allowance. Preferably I want to connect the two computers via the joint HDMI / Ethernet ports. For this I'd require a 'cross-over' cable but Maplin and P.C. World only sell these for pure Ethernet ports which the Dells do not have. They do have joint HDMI / Eternet ports but a cross-over cable does not seem to be available. Failing all this I will have to use a 1TB Toshiba Canvio drive - but that is so old school.

    Hi Chris

    Why not try Backupper it has a file or folder image creator if the files are
    not to big then you could copy the image file over to a flash drive.

    There's a send anywhere program here's the link

    You could send via bluetooth, bluetooth dongles are approx £1 or $1.50 off ebay.
