Migrating Your Old Files and Settings to Your New PC

Have you ever bought a new PC, and then spent days—and days—trying to get your new unit configured the same way your old one was? Have you ever had to manually add all your favorites and contacts to a new installation? Have you ever searched all through your old hard disk, hunting for all the documents you created in the past few years that absolutely, positively have to be copied to your new system?
