Speaking of hard drives, what is your preferred method for moving your image files - JPG's, TIFFs, etc. and other misc. data - from the hard drives on the old machine to the new build?
Once the new PC is built I'll be doing a fresh install of all my programs onto the new NVMe drives. However I've got about 3-4TB of images I'd like to simply copy over. I don't want to go up to the cloud and then down to the new machine. I'm a bit rusty on all the new networking features of Win 10 and Win 11 but don't they have the ability to allow both machines to direct connect or easily go through my home router?
I know there's some third party s/w out there that will help, or I could just plug one of my backup drives to the new machine and copy it over. TBH I'm pretty good about backing up but not 100% so that's why I'd prefer to copy over from my main working drive to be on the safe side. Any suggestions?
