Hello,
If I transfer Word data from one computer to another regularly, do the transfers after the first include all data, or just new data?
 

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

When you save an existing Word document within your own computer, the new data are added to the old - you may have noticed that a temporary version of the original is created a soon as you open the document and that. That also applies if you're working across a network. However, when you copy a flie from one system to another, the entire file is transferred and overwrites (with a warning) a file with the same name if one exists in the target system.

How are you transferring data - copy and paste, cut and paste or SaveAs?
