  • I'm not sure EXACTLY what you mean, or why it is an issue, but the short answer is, sure you can! The data is either stored on a HDD or a Flash drive of some sort, otherwise the data/information would just disappear when you turn off the machine(s).

    That being said, you could easily transfer the data onto a portable flash drive, and then plug it into your other machine and open/save them there, or you can transfer the docs between computers via your home network. Either way should be pretty easy for you, so if you need more information or details, be sure to ask. - Mark
