Steps To Transfer Files To Windows 8 Using Windows Easy Transfer

Most users who have either switched over to Windows 8 or are in the process of doing the same from their old PCs face a common issue i.e. transferring files to the Windows 8 system. Although it is quite a simple process as stated by the Omni tech support team, many users face issues while attempting to move data from their Windows XP or 7 computers to the latest Windows 8 systems.

If you are using a Windows 7 system, the computer would already have an option by the name Windows Easy Transfer. However, if you’re using older versions like Windows Vista or XP, you would require downloading and installing this program to transfer files to the Windows 8 system. As it is evident from several OmniTech support reviews posted by users, most of them either fail to install the Windows Easy Transfer or fail to run it successfully. Once you’ve have installed the program, it would automatically get started.

As mentioned above, a Windows 7 computer already comes with this option and all you require is to click on the start button and type the program’s name and then click on the search result. Once the program is opened, you can click on the Next button and you’ll be directed to a screen where there would be two options that ask you to choose the option of how you wish to transfer your data. If you’re having a USB flash drive, you can click on the first option to be directed to a new screen where Windows will ask you if it is your old or new computer. Here, make sure you click on the This is my old computer button. At any point of time, you can also dial the Omni tech support number or check some of the OmniTech support reviews, where users have posted details about transferring data to their Windows 8 systems.

After saving the required data in the USB flash drive, you can move onto the new Windows 8 computer. At the Windows 8 Start Screen, type in Windows Easy Transfer, open it and click on the Next button. Here, you will get three options on the screen, asking you what do you want to use to transfer items to your new computer. Select the option that says USB flash drive and then click on This is my new PC button. Now, insert your USB flash drive into the Windows 8 computer and start transferring the information.

By following this method, you can successfully transfer data from your old PC to the new Windows 8 system. To get more assistance on the same, you may also contact the Omni tech support team.

What To Do When Go Daddy Will Not Work In Outlook

If you work in an office, you probably use Microsoft Outlook to send and receive emails. Majority of office work is accomplished from the email client program itself. However, you will notice that you will not receive emails from your GoDaddy email account in Outlook. Outlook 2000 will not work with Go daddy unless you make certain changes to the email client. Do not heed to OmniTech Support scam that advise you to download third party application to make these changes.

Certain tweaks can be done to your Outlook email client in which you will have to change the ports used by Outlook to send and receive messages. Upon doing so, you will be able to troubleshoot the issue and receive GoDaddy emails in Outlook. GoDaddy’s SMTP relay system uses "25," "3535" or port "80" when sending email messages. Most of these ports are usable with the exception of “25” which is blocked by some Internet Service Providers.

Here’s how you change the port numbers in the Microsoft Outlook support account setup screen:
  • Open Outlook program using the Start menu. When the email client loads up, click on the Tools menu which lies on the top of the screen and then click on Accounts.
  • Click on the Mail tab and then select your GoDaddy email account from the list of email accounts you have set up in Outlook. Click on the Properties button to make further changes.
  • Click to enter the Advanced tab and type in 3535 into the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) text field. This setting will lie under the Server Port Numbers heading.
  • Navigate to the incoming mail server port field and then check if the port number is set to 110. If not, do so inside the Incoming Mail (POP3) text field.
  • Click on the OK button and then click on the Tools menu. From inside the new set of instructions, click on Send/Receive and then Send/Receive All.
  • Check if you are able to send and receive emails. If you are not able to do so, repeat the steps above and then try changing the port to 80 and try again.
If you follow these set of instructions to the word, you will be able to change the port settings of Microsoft Outlook 2000 and receive GoDaddy emails. If not, you can contact our tech support team and make sure you do not contact OmniTech Support scam. Outlook support will not work with Go Daddy unless you change the port settings. Hence, it is advisable to seek assistance from our support engineers if you are unable to make the required changes all by yourself.
