Microsoft: a tool to transfer Mac data to the Surface

With its new utility “Mac To Surface Assistant”(“Surface migration wizard”, In French), Microsoft wants to facilitate the transition from macOS to Windows for those who use an Apple computer and a Surface at the same time.

The tool is simple to use and has only one function, which is to transfer Mac data to the Surface tablet. After accepting the terms of use, the user can select the folders or files he wishes to transfer to his Windows tablet, such as photos, music or other personal documents.

To access the archive from its Surface, it will then suffice to launch the utility.

Offering a data transfer assistant is not a new concept, but the possibility of storing your files in applications connected to the Cloud has reduced the need for this type of support. In December, Microsoft said that more and more Mac users are turning to its hybrid tablet. The latter would also have made excellent sales. However, the Redmond company has not released specific figures.
