Ideapad 530S - problem with Lenovo Migration Assistant

2018-10-31, 23:21 PM

I have just acquired an Ideapad and was hoping to use Migration Assistant to help with transferring files from my old laptop. Oddly, when I open MA it immediately closes itself again! I have tried removing the program and re-downloading it without success. Any advice gratefully accepted. Many thanks.,

Thanks very much. I don't want to appear ungrateful but that process is too complex for me to undertake. I'll just use a different method of transferring my files. Thanks again.
