Why can't I use the File Transfer Wizard in Windows 8.1?

Episode 1049 (11:20)

Laurie from Austin, TX

Laurie says that Microsoft's Windows 8.1 doesn't support the Microsoft Easy Transfer Wizard with the new update. Leo says that the Transfer Wizard sometimes backfires and doesn't really work. So it may be Microsoft deciding that it's not worth it anymore. She has a bunch of old computers that she's wondering what to do with, and Leo suggests putting Linux on them. Leo says that Ubuntu Linux is a great version for people coming from Windows. It'll breathe new life into an old computer, and will keep it secure.
