It's time to take an old Mac running OS8.6 to the old Mac's home. I need to transfer a lot of files to one of my XP-based PCs.
I really don't want to spend any additional $'s to upgrade the s/w or h/w of the Mac in order just transfer the files.
- Direct LAN transfers seem to be painful w/o getting OS10. Seems to be the equivalent of swinging a chicken over your head, doing the goat dance, praying to evil gods, etc...
- No CD burner in the Mac.
- only has usb 1.1.
- OS8.6 can read usb thumb drives - but can't write to them
I'm leaning toward archiving the files with Aladdin's Stuff-It, shipping the archive to a remailer and downloading to my PC. Problem is, what XP compatible freeware/shareware is out there that can un-stuff the archive?
Any ideas out there?
