    How do I transfer my PC files (word, excel etc) to Mac?

    The only files that I can see have been transferred correctly are photos. Can anyone help with how I go about successfully transferring my other files?

    1. Buy Microsoft Office and use /Applications/Utilities/Migration Assistant.app to transfer your documents to the Mac.

    If all of your files are easy to identify [i.e. the re in 1 or 2 folders] then just copy them cross using thumb drive or USB drive depending on the size...for example, if you re following the Microsoft file system and all of your files are stored under your username [i.e. c:/users/username/*.* then copy that folder to a USB drive and then copy them to the corresponding OS X folder].

    Both the folks here answered your question..

    The easiest way is using OS X's Migration Assistant, then you'll have everything.

    Otherwise, just use a USB stick or DropBox.
