I am getting a new PC tomorrow, and wondered what is a good way of 
transferring programs, settings and data from old to new. There are a 
number of paid-for solutions out there, but what is their provenance and 

And what about connecting the PCs?  Do I need an A-to-A USB cable?

I do have a several-hundred-GB external drive, which no doubt can help 
with data transfer.

Sorry for all the questions, but I wasn't expecting the new machine for
