I'm not computer savvy - but is it possible to transfer a huge PT database from a laptop to a new desktop?

you can burn it off the laptop and then copy it to your desktop.

you can send it via e-mail to yourself.

you can send it over your favorite instant messenger program if you have both computers hooked up to your internet.

you can connect the pc to the laptop through ethernet and copy from one drive to another.

you can store it on an internet hard drive.

your have many options, pick which you think would be best and go with it.

Use compression (rar or zip) on the database first and it will shink alot. If I do it on my database and handhistory it only takes up 5% of the original space with zip.
