Luckily, I hadn't saved any new content to my new machine, so deleting
everything and starting the transfer process again worked fine. My guess is
that MOSTof the time, the easy transfer process works, we were just unlucky
to encounter errors. I'm glad to report that after wiping everything, and
re-transfering all images, videos and music files, all is well again, and I'm
happy with my system now. But it did take more time that I expected due to
the errors w/ easy transfer.
Marueen, given all the mods you made to your system after the transfer,
hand-deleting the dups was probably the right decision. I wish you luck!
