So, you’ve purchased or received a new Windows computer? Awesome! But, you’ll need to transfer those important documents, pictures, videos, and other files, right? We can help!

We'll help you securely transfer your data with confidence!

Your data is important to you, and we want to help you securely transfer it with confidence. Our Plugable Transfer Cables give you the power to transfer files, drag & drop files, and sync files between two compatible Windows computers.

Available to meet your need in Thunderbolt (TBT-TRAN), USB 3.0 (USB3-TRAN), and USB 2.0 (USB-EASY-TRAN), our Transfer Cables provide a direct port-port connection between two Windows computers at a time without the need for an internet connection.

Compatibility info

Our Transfer Cables and the Bravura Easy Computer Sync software are compatible with: Windows 11, 10, 7, 8.x, Vista, and XP (Thunderbolt Transfer Cables are only compatible with Windows 10 and newer). This includes both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. With that said, there are a few important details to note about compatibility and setup:

  • The Easy Computer Sync program cannot be downloaded or installed on Windows 10 and 11 computers that are in S Mode. Most systems that come with this version of Windows allow you to switch to Windows 10 and Windows 11 Home at no cost, which is compatible. (For more information about what Windows 10 S Mode is, please see this official article from Microsoft: 
    Windows 10 and Windows 11 in S mode FAQ )

  • Installed programs cannot be transferred over, and must be installed using the original discs/installation files. Our Transfer Cables and software are great for transferring documents, music, pictures, videos, and other data files, but will not move installed programs.

  • Computers must be in proper working order to install and run the Easy Computer Sync Software. Computers that can only boot into Safe Mode, won't turn on, or are in other non-operational states will be unable to transfer. If your computer cannot boot properly we'd suggest reaching out to a local and trusted technician.
